Event: Blithfield BlastOpen to these classes:
1 Mar 2020
(see list of 130 classes on the right)
So after all the storms of February and the loss of the final round of the Barrel event, Blithfield Sailing Club are hosting the Blast, a one off free (yes free) to enter handicap event.
Sunday 1st of March will see us host what we are billing as our “pre season friendly”. The days racing format will be 3 handicap races , 2 to count starting at 11:30. The Blast is open to any monohull with a PY greater than 860.
Thanks to our generous sponsors Harken, Hartley Boats, Birmingham Dinghy Services, Freedom Brewery and Creation Covers we have an abundance of prizes to spread throughout the fleets. We will also be presenting the prizes for the Blithfield Barrel, including the legendary Barrel trophy.
In the winter we are lucky to make full use of this fabulous 300 acre reservoir with uncomplicated race marks and easy launching area. The legendary Blithfield hospitality awaits with excellent wholesome food available from the galley, bar available throughout, and not forgetting those famous hot showers.
Lets kick off the 2020 season with a Blast............
