Join Royal Lymington's Centenary XOD Week!

by Tanya Baddeley 9 Feb 18:33 GMT 4-8 June 2022

The Royal Lymington Yacht Club (RLymYC) will be hosting their 2022 XOD Regatta from Saturday 4th until Wednesday 8th June. This year RLymYC is celebrating its Centenary and there has never been a better time to join them out on the water!

Always a popular event, this year's Centenary XOD Week will be bigger and more exciting than ever before, with great entertainment planned for the evenings. RLymYC welcomes entries from visiting X One Design boats from all divisions as well as their own members.

Racing will take place out on the Solent throughout the five day event, with prizes awarded for specific categories at the end of the regatta. Racing at the RLymYC XOD Week is competitive yet friendly, lighthearted and fun, with many skippers and crews enjoying drinks and socialising together in the RLymYC bar afterwards.

Visiting skippers and crews will be welcome at the Royal Lymington Yacht Club throughout the event, including the popular bar, restaurant and sun terraces.

A number of events are planned at the Club for the evenings, including a party with food and live music from The Goodfoot Band on Saturday 4th June, and a drinks party on Monday 6th June, sponsored by Wessex Distillery. The grand finale for the event will be a Prize Giving evening after racing has concluded on Wednesday 8th June.

Event entry is free for members of the Lymington XOD Division and just £60 per boat for visiting boats, which are welcome to arrive by sea or by land.

Berthing at the Club will be free for the first six visitor entries! The Club has negotiated discounted rates for other visiting boats to berth at Lymington Yachthaven or on the Harbour Master's Dan Bran pontoon.

Visiting boats arriving by land can benefit from free storage for trailer and boat by prior arrangement and a discounted rate for cranage at just £60 per lift.

Entry is now open!

Join the RLymYC Crew Match!

You don't need to own a boat to get involved in XOD Week! If you fancy racing as crew on a boat in 2022, visit the Royal Lymington's 'Crew Match' and Open Day taking place at the Club on Saturday 26th March from 10am to 12pm.

'Crew Match' is a relaxed and informal event enabling people to match their sailing experience, level of knowledge and racing ambition with club members looking for crew. Being part of a crew requires no financial outlay apart from some waterproof kit. Find out more at rlymyc.org.uk/CrewMatch2022
