The Spitfire Youth teams will be racing over the weekend and there will be opportunities to meet the youth sailors if you are interested in finding out more about Junior and Youth Catamaran sailing.

This event is also a Class Open event for the Spitfires and Dart 16s. Some junior Dart 16 sailors will have a result in the open result, so adult Spitfire and Dart 16 sailors are welcome to come and join in a friendly catamaran event.
