We know you are all keen to get sailing again and after much negotiation and discussion RYA Scotland have, at last, obtained guidance from the Scottish government outlining the conditions which will apply to large regattas run under the current Covid-19 restrictions. The good news is that this means we can confirm that the 2021 Flying Fifteen National Championships will proceed. We appreciate that this comes fairly late in the day and appreciate your patience. RNCYC looks forward to welcoming you at the end of June for what promises to be a fantastic event.

Many of you will know that the area of the Clyde, known locally as The East Patch, offers outstanding sailing waters and is just a short distance from Rhu marina, where the event will be based. We have four days of racing planned and, with a bit of luck if the restrictions continue to be relaxed, some good old Scottish hospitality.

For operational reasons, and to underpin some of the procedures we need to adopt under the Covid-19 protocols, boats will be berthed in the marina. A methodology has been developed that will hold the boats off the pontoons and rope will be provided to facilitate this. Launching and recovery will be by kind permission of the RNLI who have granted us limited access to their excellent slipway. Launching of a small number of boats can be accommodated on the Thursday morning before racing but this will be by prior arrangement only. Crews are encouraged to arrive on Wednesday afternoon to launch and proceed to their allotted space in the marina. Currently it is anticipated that we shall have to group boats into bubbles and the procedure for doing this, and keeping the bubbles separate, will be advised on arrival. If you wish to reserve a slot to launc on Thursday morning, please email

There are still a couple of spaces remaining for campervans/motorhomes and these are available on a first come basis.

The Notice of Race and Entry Form are available are available here.

There also a list of accommodation here.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

A different sort of same again The second half of Poole Week started with the wind pretty much as it had been for the first half: a shifty north-easterly that occasionally swung round to the south east and kept everyone on their toes. Posted on 1 Sep
Bournemouth Digital Poole Week 2022 Day 3
A real day of Snakes and Ladders It's hard to remember a day when the wind in Poole Harbour has been shiftier than it was on the Tuesday. During the racing, between 2pm and about 5pm when the fleets returned ashore, the wind was flicking between about 020 degrees and 130 degrees. Posted on 31 Aug

Reading the wind, negotiating the tide, avoiding the mud For Poole Week competitors on Monday, it was all about getting on the right side of the wind shifts. There were a lot of them, and they were big. That and negotiating the tide, while some later in the day also had to think about keels and mud. Posted on 30 Aug

Not a bad day on the water That was the consensus among competitors on coming ashore after the first day. The wind had blown - not very hard at times, but generally enough - and the sun had shone now and again as well. So it had been quite a satisfactory day, all things considered. Posted on 29 Aug
