The weekend will comprise of a fleet of RS21s and up to twelve teams from local clubs competing in quickfire "sprint" races, each lasting around 15 minutes.

This event is a great opportunity for sailors to get together and race, representing their club at an event, without the hassle of transporting your own boat around the UK.
