The first event of the 2019 National 12 Gul Series and the OK HD Sails Inland Series will take place at Burghfield Sailing Club on Saturday 16th of March. The aim of the day is sprint racing - fast and furious, quick turnarounds and lots of challenging fun. As many races as possible over the course of the day on a simple course. Starting is the key!

Event details and pre-registration can be found at www.burghfieldsailing.org/open-meeting-preparation-1/national-12-ok-open-1 There is a £5 discount for pre-registering, with pre-registration closing on the 13th of March.

The briefing will be held at 10:15 with the first race at 11:00. There will be a break for lunch and tea and cake will be served after racing. In addition, the National 12's are running a tuning clinic at 09:45 and a crews' race after lunch.

Competitors are invited to join club racing on Sunday if they wish.
