Being held at Bosham Sailing Club over the weekend of 6th & 7th July this unique event is now in its 3rd year.

Event organiser Andrew Young commented, "This exciting event provides a fun, competitive environment for classic racing dinghies that may not be in the first flush of youth, combined with some great parties – just like the good old days! We hope to continue to play a key role in revitalising dinghy racing for some of the older boats in the established, much loved classes."
