With under one week to go until the Datchet Flyer, on-line entry will be closing at midnight on Thursday 12th December.

Sailing Instructions are now posted on the SailJuice site. The pursuit race has been configured with an interesting twist to give the faster boats more time on the water. The fleet will be split into two, around the same course, with the slowest class and the mid-fleet class starting at the datum time. There will be two separate sets of fleet results, each with double point scoring.

Olympian Luke Patience will be competing during the weekend in a Fireball with Nationals winning crew and Winter Series stalwart Richard Anderton. Saturday evening sees a black tie and posh frocks dress code, with Luke taking stage as guest speaker after the meal. The black tie is optional … but only if you are wearing a frock. Will Luke wear his kilt? You’ll have to be there.

In addition to Luke’s talk will be the announcement of the winner of the 2013 GJW Direct Venue of the Year Award. Table bookings will be taken on request.

For the hardier campers (and glampers too) Datchet Water Sailing Club has a large open area suitable for tent and vehicle camping on site on the Saturday night.
