The 14th edition of the Seldén SailJuice Winter Series kicks off in just under four months' time, starting with the Fernhurst Books Draycote Dash on 19 & 20 November 2022.

Seldén is back for the fourth year as title sponsor of the series which since 2009 has aimed to provide the fairest possible handicap racing for small boats in the UK.

Founder and co-organiser of the Series, Andy Rice, comments: "Seldén have stayed with us through a very tough couple of seasons and we're hoping that this will be the first season since the Covid pandemic to be completed without any hitches or setbacks."

As ever, the Seldén SailJuice Winter Series aims to appeal to as many classes as possible, with typically almost 100 different types of boat represented across the season, from fleets as diverse as the traditional Norfolk Punt and National 18 to niche classes like the Hadron H2 singlehander.

Some fleets choose to use some of the events as their class championships, such as the RS Aero which typically brings up to 50 boats for the concluding event of the season, the Oxford Blue, which in recent years has served as the Aero Winter Championships. If you're interested in choosing one, some or even all of the events in the Series to construct your own class championships, email Simon Lovesey for more details:

There are many different categories available for sponsorship in the Series. If you're interested in becoming a commercial sponsor for one of the different categories (eg. Family/Lady/Club/Youth), please contact

Entry for the events opens in October at www.sailjuiceseries.com
