2013 Bosham Classic Boat Revival - dates announced
Tue, 5 Feb 2013
Bosham Sailing Club are delighted to announce the dates for the third running of their exciting Classic Boat Revival as Saturday/Sunday, July 6th-7th 2013. Event organiser Andrew Young commented, 'We are announcing these dates early so we can confirm our place in the crowded dinghy racing calendar and competitors can get the date in their diaries.
With 79 entries last year and some exciting developments in the pipeline we are confident this unique event will become an established feature on the UK dinghy racing calendar.
With a fast building interest in this style of classic dinghy sailing, we have already had significant interest and enquiries and look forward to releasing more news for the 2013 event'
Set up in 2011 to encourage owners of classic dinghies and dayboats (max 20' long) to enjoy a weekend of racing in and around Chichester Harbour, this unique annual event is playing a key role in revitalising the racing opportunities for some of the older boats in the established dinghy classes.
We look forward to welcoming entries from the classic racing classes - Albacore, Cherub, Devon/Salcombe Yawl, Enterprise, Finn, Firefly, Fireball, Flying Dutchman, GP14, Graduate, Hornet, International 14, International Moth, Jollyboat, Merlin Rocket, National 12, National 18, OK, Osprey, Scorpion, Sharpie, Snipe, Solo, 505 or YW Dayboat – all are welcome.
It is planned to have committee boat starts with all boats/classes sympathetically handicapped to ensure close racing regardless of boat age/design.
