What summer events are you doing this year and why? Talking events that require weekdays, so not weekend only opens. 

Regattas I'm thinking about anything that doesn't carry a title.  Then championships include worlds, euros and nationals. 

Are you returning to support a favourite event, or trying something new? New class or old? Or just giving up on travelling for the summer, and if so why?

Doing the Musto UK nationals in September. This will be my first nationals in any class, ever! It will be my first ever Musto event, my first event with more than 10 boats on the start line and, most terrifying of all, my first time bringing a boat on a ferry!

Bass Week for us in our 200...

  • Not been before but heard good things about it from fellow club members
  • Not enough leave left to do 'holiday' and 'big summer sailing event' so think this'll feel more like a combination than would the Nationals (although have had a great time at all recent 200 Champs).
  • Know the area well from non-sailing exploits so will have plenty alternative activities to do.
  • Big 200 contingent going so will get fleet competition after a fashion (not that we're very competitive!)
  • 9 days' worth (ie weekend + midweek + weekend)
  • Etc etc

I have our Nationals in early September to look forward too down on the Solent and I will also be taking my boat with me down to Cornwall for my family's holiday and hoping to blag some sailing if I am a good boy!

Already done POSH plus another open, cant do Weymouth Regatta as involved in the 400/2000 event at the club. Nationals for the Phantoms at my home club (LOSSC) so sailing those as I have mostly for the last 10 years approx.
Looking at Weston open for single handers  as a summer option as well.

A return to Poole Week after 15 yr-odd absence, after years of doing Nationals. Just for the fun of it and a mix of W/L and round the cans courses.
