Sailing Calendar 2024

The sailing calendar for the new season has now been finalised.  It was very evident last
season that pressures on people’s time, and therefore crew availability, was one the major factors behind the drop-off in the number of boats participating in organised club racing.
To address this issue, this season, we are focusing the keel boat racing into 3 standalone regattas being held in May (11th -12th ), June (22nd -23rd ) and September (14th -15th ) which will hopefully enable skippers to commit to local club racing for just one weekend each month.
Each race will have silverware to be won as well as overall regatta winners. These regattas will include the races that have maintain their popularity over the years like the Wallet Cup, Ancient Mariners race and the Autumn Trophy. The event in June will be the Centenary Regatta celebrating the 125 th anniversary of the club.   As with each of the regattas, WS and LH handicap racing is planned, so regardless of racing prowess I would encourage all skippers to support the racing.
The House Committee will also be supporting these events so there is every opportunity for some great sailing and socialising.

Separately, there will be a 4-race Sonata series held as joint venture between WMYC, DSC and Colne YC, see the sailing calendar for details. We are anticipating some excellent class racing, so all Sonata skippers block off your diaries.
