2 Weeks until Bruinesse

There is two weeks to go until the first European Grand prix regatta in Bruinesse, Holland.

RS Sailing still have space left on their trailer(s) to Holland. This event is set to be a cracker with 8 Nationalities competing to take the win.

There will be class training on the Friday, for anyone that can make it. Please do not be put off if you think you will not be on the pace. We are a very friendly bunch and it would be great to see you there.

Check out the NEW International Class website and Championship Site to find out all of the details-

Dunno about anyone else, but I’d happily swap the sun for some useful breeze.

So where’s to sail this w/e. Surely a sea breeze is too mUch to hope for.
