A warm up regatta is also being held over the weekend of 19-20 October.

It will mark 20 years since the same club held the 2004 Finn World Masters, which attracted 192 entries, a record at the time that stood until 2008.

The club has a long history with the Finn with one of the largest Finn fleets present at the club. Each year since 2003 it has organised the Semaine Internationale des Finn, which has evolved into the traditional season opening event. This year it is being held from 13-16 February. Already there are 48 entries. Website here

The opening of entry for the Open Europeans completes the programme of the three major events for the Finn Class in 2024, which are all proving very popular.
