There are just under four weeks left until the start of Burton Week. The event is running from the 24th - 27th August at Pevensey Bay SC. Entries are looking on track to beat 2018.

There are a number of helms looking for crews and also a number of boats looking for helms. Do you know anyone who'd like to crew or someone who'd like to sail but needs a boat. If so please get in touch with Zoe Ballantyne, email and we'll match up helms, crews and boats.

The event is sponsored by Gul and is part of the National Gul series 2019. There are prizes available throughout the fleet including juniors, newcomers, lady helms, non-foilers and Admirals Cup 12s. There's on-site camping and several holiday parks within walking distance of the club for easy accommodation, as well as Airbnb apartments in nearby Eastbourne marina. In the evenings there will be a BBQ, championship dinner and team games. Come and experience South Coast sea sailing at its best!

Look forward to seeing you at Pevensey.
