Forming part of the Craftinsure Wayfarer National Circuit, the 2023 Wayfarer Easterns is a highly anticipated sailing event set to take place at the Medway Yacht Club on the weekend of 17-18 June 2023.

Alongside Craftinsure, additional event sponsors include Shepherd Neame, Wayfarer Wines and Pirate Cave. The Easterns is open to all Wayfarer sailors from across the country, from novices to experienced championship racers. It promises to be a fun and competitive weekend of racing on the River Medway.

Medway Yacht Club is a prestigious sailing venue with excellent facilities and a team of experienced volunteers who are dedicated to ensuring the success of the championship. The club has a rich history of hosting major sailing events, including the annual Medway Keelboat Regatta and the Medway Marathon and boasts a beautiful location on the River Medway.

The racing will take place over the course of the weekend, with multiple races scheduled each day. It should noted that the home fleet is one of largest active and competitive Wayfarer racing club fleets in the Country, taking home the team trophy on numerous occasions in recent National Championships. A good performance at this event will likely be a good indicator of a good form moving into the upcoming nationals at Dabchicks Sailing Club (30th June to 2nd July). Aside from the racing, competitors will enjoy supper in the clubhouse and a legendary quiz on the Saturday evening.

The Craftinsure Wayfarer Easterns at Medway Yacht Club promises to be an exciting and competitive event that will showcase the best of Wayfarer racing in the UK at a fantastic venue. Whether you're a seasoned racer or a newcomer to the sport, this is an event that you won't want to miss.
