This page has a collated list of known 2017 Open Meetings.
Further details can be obtained from each club – see the Affiliated Clubs page for links to their web sites. You are advised to check near to the event that the details have not changed, and if possible please pre-register to make the clubs’ life easier in organisation, catering etc.
If you have other meetings to be added to the list, please contact Sam Healy with the dates and details. Our intention is to advertise the “one-off single events” where a visiting sailor can come along and take part for a day or weekend. Some of these events are long-established annual regattas. We may add one or two events from the West region as well, knowing that they have support from clubs in the South.
We have also added a set of West Region events. Whilst not exhaustive, these regattas are known to attract boats from the South. They are differentiated by being in Blue Italics.
Welsh Open Team Racing (Club) Championships – 2017
The Regional Committee has decided to trial a Welsh Open Team Racing (weekend event) Club Championships rather than a Grand Prix style event in 2016. Cardiff Bay YC oraginised the event. Teams of 6 were invited to compete for the Tim Cymru Trophy.
CBYC hope to host the event again in 2017.
