We are delighted to announce that Sailing Chandlery have agreed to become the exclusive sponsors of the 2018 Northern Tour, which will now be named the Sailing Chandlery RS200 Northern Tour.

Sailing Chandlery will be providing prizes for the top three overall, raffle prizes at each event plus a few spot prizes to be handed out at the end of season prize giving.

Andrew Dowley, founder of Sailing Chandlery (previously Dinghy Rope) said "It's great to be involved with the RS200 fleet and we look forward to supporting the sailors during the season and their Northern Tour series."

The RS200 Northern Tour series consists of eight open meetings in the North and Midlands and attracts a mixed demographic sailor from teenagers through to the fifty pluses.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly and very relaxed traveller's series, so please come and join us in at least one event this year. The more experienced sailors will be on hand to provide tuning advice, tips, etc.

The 2018 schedule is as follows:

  • 7 Apr - Delph
  • 14-15 Apr - Ullswater
  • 12 May - Staunton Harold
  • 2 Jun - Yorkshire Dales
  • 9 Jun - Leigh & Lowton
  • 23-24 Jun - Filey
  • 29 Sep - Carsington
  • 20 Oct - Budworth
The prize giving will be held after the Budworth Open Meeting on 20th October.
