Free entry and ferry discounts for all in the Uffa Fox 50 Celebration 2022

by Sabina Mollart-Rogerson 17 Jun 2022 02:52 PDT 18-21 August 2022

Organisers of the UF50 Celebration sailing regatta have announced that those attending the event will now be able to enter free of charge, as well as benefit from a generous 50% discount off their car ferry.

"We are delighted to announce that Red Funnel have provided us with 50% discount vouchers on their Car Ferry from 17 to 22 August 2022 for those entering. In addition, we have received a most kind and significant donation for the event from Patsy and David Franks which enables us to let you enter free of charge (entry fees to date will be reimbursed) and also allows us to let entrants for the UF50 sailing regatta have a further subsidy on the Red Funnel car ferry of £100," says Peter J Taylor, MBE and Chairman of the Organising Committee.

"So if your ferry quote for car and trailer is say, £300, Red Funnel will halve it to £150 and we will provide a further subsidy of £100 leaving a net car ferry cost to you of £50 plus the bonus of a free entry," says Peter.

The Red Funnel discount code will be provided after entry by contacting the Royal London Yacht Club office and the further subsidy reimbursement will be provided upon provision of ferry booking details at the Registration office during the event.

Call to share all things Uffa A festival celebrating the legacy of Uffa Fox 50 years onwards, organisers are encouraging Uffa Fox dinghy owners to bring their boats along to the Parade, as well as urging anyone who has interesting images of Uffa, his boats or old Uffa sails to share them for sustainability and educational purposes.

"We fully understand if you do not wish to race your classic Uffa Fox designed dinghy, but please do bring her along to the static display on the Parade, which will be the focal point of the event with a fenced-off area and 24-hour security guards, and enjoy the social interaction with other Uffa enthusiasts. Without your support and of all those entering, we would not be able to celebrate the legacy of this amazing man who was a legend in the world of sailing," adds Peter.

The above offers are open until 1700 on Friday 15 July. On the accommodation side there are still cost-effective options available at the Royal London Yacht Club, the Island Sailing Club and the UKSA. Contact directly for booking information.
