The Phantom class are sailing this weekend at Paignton Sailing Club, 12th - 13th May, as part of POSH (Paignton Open for Single Handers) due to the Shoreham open being unfortunately cancelled.

Three races are scheduled to be held back-to-back both days with the Saturday start at 12.55 and on Sunday at 10.25.

Sailing will take place in the waters of Torbay and the Notice of Race is on the Paignton Sailing Club website. It's a great event and a great location!
