Racing - Proposed Racing 2020-21 Programme
We're looking at a two-year programme and would encourage members to think in terms of both years, although that does not preclude doing a more limited number of races or even just one! Having said that a good level of member commitment will be needed to make the programme viable and we will need to give priority to those wishing to commit to the full series. if we're oversubscribed we can look to add more races.
If possible we intend to use the same boat for all the offshore races and at present discussions are underway for a Sunfast 3600 with eight berths. The Sunsail races would be using one of their new First 41’s.
We'll also be entering the Round The Island Race on 30 May chartering an Oceanis 37 from Fairview.
