The Entry List for the Harken RS200 Inland Championships at Grafham Water SC is beginning to look like a who's who of British Dinghy Sailing.

Coming just one week before the best in Britain battle it out in the RS200 for the 'champion of champions' title at the Endeavour Trophy; the RS200 Inlands will boast a start line studded with sailing Superstars.

2019 RS400 Champion Nick Craig will line up, crewed by RS200 legend Emma Hivey, as will current RS200 No.1 James Peters with Charlie Darling.

Champions from the RS stable will be faced with hot competition from outside the RS family. 470 Olympian Luke Patience has entered along with GBR team mates Chris Taylor (49er) and Nick Robins (49er).

Current 470 National Champion Jonny McGovern also lines up with Sarah McGovern in the front; this pair fresh from a third place at the RS200 Nationals in Torbay this year.

With 9 days remaining until the Championships kicks off at Grafham and the Endeavour - See Current Entry List

The Harken RS200 Inland Championships is part of the Rooster National Tour. Online entry closes at midnight on October 2nd. Entry fee is £40 per boat, including two days of racing and there is an optional fleet meal on the Saturday evening.

Endeavour competitors receive free event membership of the RS200 Class Association.
