The WASZP UK Class and HISC are hosting the inaugural Noble Marine WASZP Stadium Event.

Following the lead of the Magenta Project who inspire female racing sailors to reach the top of their sport Victoria Payne WASZP UK manager and Race Officer Charlie Bradshaw have coordinated an all female race committee to promote women in the sailing world. The WASZP UK class regularly has high percentages of female sailors at events which is proving to be a diverse and inclusive boat to sail.

The exciting racing format will include slalom and sprint racing with shore commentary, inclusive to all WASZP sailors at any level of foiling. With the Slalom races at only 3 minutes long it's the most intense, exciting and entertaining racing. The entertainment continues into the evening with a games night and a band. Zhik will be providing the quality prizes.
