It's now only a week away from the third annual Laser Vago Northern Open/Fun/Training Event with a new location at Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club. With the usual last minute arrivals still to add to the 10 boats already confirmed, this is warming up to be a great May bank holiday weekend, with the added extra of Friday evening arrival!

The format will be similar to last year with 3 days of training, coaching and short duration racing for all formats of Vago. The event will again cater for everyone from complete beginners to seasoned racers, with personal and group tuition available from our friendly Vago experts and champions on topics from rigging and trapezing right through to race rules and tactics: and it's all with an emphasis on fun!

Games, quizes and general chaos will be on the agenda for the non sailors and families while extra informal sailing formats may also include team and relay racing along with speed trial, depending on the weather of course.

With the backdrop of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park, amazing club facilities and camping only 15 minutes away, you can expect the usual event photos and videos, top quality food and Northern welcome.

Full information is available on the event website.
