Tynemouth Sailing club is looking forward to warmly welcoming the Miracle fleet to their summer regatta, on July 18th and 19th. The Tynemouth summer regatta is a long running open event, which has included a popular Enterprise meeting for many years in addition to a general handicap fleet racing. Last year the summer regatta hosted the Solution Nationals, and in 2015, for the first time the Tynemouth summer regatta is hosting a Miracle class open meeting.

The event will comprise 6 races over the 2 days with 3 back to back races each day. Things kick off at 2pm on saturday, with racing in the bay to either the North or South of the River Tyne, depending on wind conditions. Enterprises, Miracles and Handicap fleets will have their own starts.

These two excellent days racing will cost £20, for any double hander classes and £15 for any single handed handicap boats. A beach barby will run in the evening with beach and party games for those who haven’t used al their energy sailing.

Tynemouth village and neighbouring Whitley bay also provide many entertainment options for any accompanying non-sailors.

Checkout the Tynemouth Sailing Club website for further details including notice of race also thanks to Gibson Sails for support on the Miracle open meeting.
