The Selden SailJuice Winter Series is well under way and so it's time get your entry in for the one and only true Northern event in the series: The Brass Monkey at Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club on the 27th December.

You are guaranteed a typical warm Yorkshire welcome to our underfloor heated clubhouse and renowned galley fayre. We pride ourselves in never running out of hot water for the showers! The event has been full to capacity with over 100 entries for the last few years so worth getting your entry in soon.

We have kept our entry fees again low this year at only £30 for a single and £40 for a double hander. This includes food and refreshments all day, post race punch and nibbles afterwards!

There will be lots of prizes kindly supported by the club.

There are two handicap races scheduled and most dinghies (PY between Mirror and 49er) are welcome, but sorry no multihulls or keelboats. As in previous years we will hand out bow numbers and trackers at reception.

We have and will take the required Covid precautions at the time, such as a well ventilated clubhouse with extra seating capacity in new marquees on terrace with heaters.

Please enter at and see also our Facebook discussion forum for immediate information on weather conditions.
