If you ever thought of competing in the legendary John Merricks Tiger Trophy but didn't fancy getting cold at Rutland Water, next weekend is your opportunity. Taking place on 28/29 August 2021, the Tiger Trophy marks the finale of this season's long-extended Seldén SailJuice Winter Series.

As usual the event is open to a wide range of dinghies and other small craft including sportsboats, catamarans and Challenger trimarans.

Racing takes place under the Great Lakes Handicap numbers, the well-proven variation on the standard RYA PY numbers.

With so many events cancelled in recent months, you can also use the Tiger Trophy as your opportunity to run an 'open meeting with an open meeting' for your particular class. Many classes already use the Seldén SailJuice Winter Series. Quite apart from that though, just turn up and get some good racing in, and some socially-distanced apres-racing too.

Already we're seeing a good sign-up from the 420 fleet, Lasers, RS Aeros, as well as Challengers and 2000s.

Some are already entered specifically with the aim of winning overall honours in the Seldén SailJuice Winter Series. See the standings so far.

The format is three back-to-back handicap races on Saturday and a Pursuit Race on the Sunday. The legendary Tiger Dinner will take place at Rutland Sailing Club on Saturday evening starting at 6.30pm.

The following events will count towards the series scoring:

Datchet Flyer, Datchet Water SC, 6-7 December 2020
Grafham Belle, Grafham Water SC, 29-30 May 2021
Medway Marathon, Medway YC, 19 June 2021
Tiger Trophy, Rutland Water SC, 28-29 August 2021

(Bala Long Distance, Bala SC, 10-11 July 2021 - CANCELLED)
