The 2000 Class is pleased to be able to publish events for 2022, and thank all of the clubs involved for helping put together a range of events for our sailors.

Following a shortened season in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic, we hope 2022 has something for everyone, and we can get back to a full series of events.

The season includes:

  • Training and coaching at two events.
  • Millennium Series consisting of seven events, with title sponsorship from West Country Boat Repairs. It is great news that our 2021 sponsor is returning for 2022.
  • National Championship at Castle Cove over a full week in the summer.
  • Inland Championship at Weir Wood SC.
  • Euro holiday event at Carnac YC, France.
  • Welsh Championship at Cardiff Bay YC.
