Given the challenging weather forecast for this Saturday and the large number of competitors expected to travel to this popular event, the Organising Committee of the Staunton Blaster has taken the decision to cancel sailing on Saturday 22nd and to run the Blaster as a one-day event on Sunday 23rd February when the wind looks much more inviting!

Timings

The intention is to run four races (three to count) with the following timings:
Briefing: 10:30 a.m.
First Race: 11:00 a.m.

Galley

Bacon butties will be available from 9:30 a.m. Hot galley lunch will also be available.

Cost

For sailors who are not members of SHSC, Notts County or Ogston Sailing Clubs, the entry fee will be £12 for single-handers and £15 for double-handers, half price for Juniors (aged 18 and under).

Grand prize

Look forward to seeing you on Sunday - don't forget the grand prize of 2020 SHSC membership will be awarded to the highest placed travelling boat!

Happy sailing to everyone taking part in what will be the Grand Finale of the 2020 Midlands Mini Series. To book please see shsc.org.uk/event/staunton-blaster-open-event
