2016 is the 40th year of Ovington Boats so we're having a party to celebrate at Derwent Reservoir SC 27th/28th August.

We have live bands lined up for Friday and Saturday evening, marquee, giant inflatable games, extra outdoor bar and a gourmet spit roast. Plenty of space on site for camping/ motorhomes and few neighbours to disturb! There is even some racing, organised by Howard Steavenson – 3 races on the Saturday split between asymmetric and conventional fleets/ course, followed by an all in pursuit race on the Sunday.

This celebration regatta is open to all boats with PY1200 or faster. We expect to see everything sailing from Enterprises, through to 49ers and VX Ones.

Online entry available here – the price goes up the week before so we can book a large enough pig to roast!

Any questions please get in touch; or call 0191 2576011.
