The inaugural Bosham Classic Boat Revival, 25 & 26 June 2011, attracts nationwide interest Bosham Sailing Club is hosting the first Classic Boat Revival on 25 & 26 June 2011. This inaugural event hopes to attract the largest number of classic day boats and dinghies ever seen in the UK. Already many entries have been received from a variety of classes from as far afield as Cumbria, Kent, Gloucestershire and Devon as well as the South Coast, where the Club is based.

Entries are hoped to include 505, Albacore, Devon Yawl, Firefly, Fairy Falcon, Graduate, GP14, Hornet, International Canoe, International 14, Jollyboat, Merlin Rocket, Moth, National 18, Chichester Harbour 18, Osprey, Redwing, Scow, Snipe, Sharpie, Solos, Tideway, Torbay Minnow, YW Dayboat, and other similar ‘classic’ dinghy classes with a maximum length of 20 feet.

There will be six races over the two days with committee boat starts in Chichester Harbour. There will also be a Concours D’Elegance with Classic Boat Magazine among the judges.

Supper accompanied by live jazz will be available on Friday 24 June, and a regatta party will be held on Saturday 25 June with supper and live music from the Mustangs at the clubhouse. Some free accommodation and berthing is available for visiting crews.

Race entry by 20 June is £20 per boat. Entries after this date will be £25 per boat, at the discretion of the organisers.
