Crewsaver Abersoch Dinghy Week Andy Teague
There is dinghy racing for the Laser, Solo, Single Handed Mixed dinghies, Laser Radial and Phantom classes and a handicap race for Toppers, Tera’s, Cadets, Mirrors, Miracles and Fevas in the morning. In the afternoon there is racing for RS 200s, Asymmetric Dinghies, RS400s, Fireballs, Slow Mixed Dinghies and Fast Mixed Dinghies.
For the younger beginner sailors there is Oppie and Tera training in the afternoon and for the younger more advanced Optimist sailors there will be coaching in the mornings with a national coach followed by racing in the afternoons.
The non-sailors needn't miss out either with the fantastic Golden Sands of Abersoch beach to enjoy and the stunning club house set on the headland overlooking the bay offering the best place to watch the racing with a tipple of your favourite drink in your hand.
Racing Starts on Sunday 20th July 2014 at 11am for the morning fleets and 2pm for the afternoon fleets. Races are usually two hours long and extended over 6 days with the normal 5 races to count.
Plans for a lively entertainment program are in motion with Dinghy Weeks favourite band Elephant Juice already confirmed, a paddle boarding competition, and a quiz night to test your physical and mental strength.
