Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, there are some great prizes on offer – including a free, brand new spinnaker, to a cut and cloth of your choice, courtesy of Hyde Sails and Bainbridge International!
It’s done on a pro-am, or buddy system. After the first day’s racing, each boat will be paired with another – 1st with last, 2nd with 2nd-last, and so on. For the rest of the regatta these boats’ scores will be combined, and the pair with the lowest score at the end of the regatta wins! The spinnaker will go to the lower-placed of the pair, with another good prize for the higher-placed boat.
This gives a good incentive to get chatting and sharing rig-tuning and boat handling tips with your paired boat.
Also on offer is a half price sail of your choosing from Dart Sails, which will be drawn at the prizegiving.
Dimension Polyant have provided a free keg of beer as well as some other prizes, Nixplay.com are sponsoring the infamous Friday rum party and we also have support from: One Sails, Banks Sails, Shore sails, International Paint, Force 4 Chandlery and many more.
It’s going to be a great event!
