Dates for 2013

It is very difficult to please everybody all the time, but please believe me when I tell you that a huge amount of effort goes into deciding dates for regattas.

  • We want to have Neep tides for example.
  • We need to try and ensure the dates don't clash with other regattas.
  • Can we have the Quarter Ton Cup in the school holidays/Half Term?
  • Does it work with the Yacht Club/Marina and is the preferred PRO available?
  • Does it suit the sponsor?

Anyway, decisions have been made and they are as follows:

  • 17 - 19 May, Vice Admiral's Cup
  • 1 June - Round the Island Race
  • 15 - 17 July - Quarter Ton Cup
  • 3 - 10 August - Cowes Week

I do hope that as many of you as possible will visit the Solent and make it to the Quarter Ton Cup.
