West Oxfordshire Race Meeting
April 18 @ 12:00 pm - April 19 @ 4:00 pm
UPDATE: I’m afraid this meeting is cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please come back to the website for more events later in the season.
Pop this weekend in your diary and dust off the road base for your Wanderer dinghy trailer. It should prove to be a busy and fun event with 5 races planned over two days, sharing the sheltered water with the Wayfarers. Our fourth year at this venue.
As ever this is FREE race entry to Wanderer Association Members
There will be separate starts for the two fleets if numbers justify it, with Wanderers following Wayfarer starts by 5 minutes, meaning they don’t have to sail through us and we get to chase them and see which way pays up the first beat or where people can hold spinnakers without having to experiment ourselves…while watching and learning from their racier types.
It would be great to see a good number of boats at this geographically central venue, and the event would provide everyone with a great early season shakedown and a valuable sighter for those working up to the National Championships.
It really does helpto know who’s planning to take part. Please contact WCOA Events Coordinator Philip Meadowcroft ASAP, see event details. I look forward to seeing as many as possible at West Oxford Sailing Club.
Hot food will be available at breakfast and during the lunch break on both race days and dinner will be available on the Saturday evening at extra cost. Camping on-site available.
