Series & Start Times

We run five series annually, as well as one-off events including long-distance races and team racing. Trophies are awarded at a Trophy Evening social event in November.

Please see the calendar for series dates. Race start times are as follows:

  • Saturdays: 14.30 (two races)
  • Wednesdays: 18.30 (one race)
  • Sundays & Bank Holidays: 10.30 (format varies)

Please arrive approximately 1 hour before the race start, to allow an assessment of fleet size and conditions to be made.

For results, please see the results page.

Officer Of the Day (OOD) Rota

We use a ‘rolling rota’ to decide who will be the Race Officer for club racing. When your name reaches the top of the list, it is your turn to do the OOD duty; when you do a duty, cross your name off the top of the list and write it at the bottom of the page in the boat store.
