Europe UK Nationals to be held at WOSH - the Weston Open for Single Handers

The famous WOSH Weston Open for Single Handers will be the centre of Europe action on 25th & 26th August.

This year the Europe Open Nationals will be included in the WOSH and with eight races at the club with a long and strong Europe history it promises to be a great weekend.

Last year's Europe Nationals at Christchurch was a recent record with a fleet of eighteen and a mix of all ages and genders unique to the Europes. Can we match it this year?

The entry fee for WOSH is only £26! You must be a paid-up member of the UK Europe Association to take part. This costs £20. But for the last couple of years we have subsidised new members competing at the nationals to the tune of – guess what - £20! Who knows, we may do that again! It's a win win for everyone. It boosts the Association and makes the Nationals cheaper!

The Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions are at www.weston.org.uk/open-events. Camping is available for only £5.

What more to say? See you there!
