The Midland travellers series continues with two mid-summer events.

Northampton Sailing Club - 4th/5th June

The next venue in the series will be hosted at Pitsford Reservoir in the beautiful Northampton shire countryside. The 600 acre water provides great racing with amazing facilities and onsite camping.

The club are very much looking forward to welcoming visitors to the renowned two day event which historically attracts Phantom sailors from far a field.

The series has already shown there is a depth of talent in the fleet and with the forecast for the weekend looking superb, we're in for another treat of competitive racing and of course a great social.

Six races are scheduled over the two days and entries are now open at webcollect.org.uk/nsc/event/phantom-open

The NOR and SIs are also available on the club website: northamptonsailingclub.org

Carsington Water Sailing Club - 17th July

To complete the mid summer schedule before the autumn, Carsington will be providing the next location again set in beautiful countryside in the Derbyshire National Park. Always a popular event in the Phantom calendar.

This is a joint event with the Northern series, which should provide a friendly competitive edge between the two regions.

NOR and SIs will be available nearer the event.
