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.
