GJW DIrect SailFest, WPNSA, August Bank Holiday

SailFest is the new annual sailing festival to take place in August each year at Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy (WPNSA), as a continuing legacy of the Olympic Games events held there.  Running from Friday 23rd to Monday 26th August, 3 days of racing on the Olympic waters on 2 or more courses will culminate in a big pursuit race on Bank Holiday Monday.  Winter Series style handicap racing but with fleet starts for any class attracting a significant number of boats, and much more going on besides.  The racing is preceded by a training day on the Friday and will include a Class Association Display in the hangar, shore side displays, tasters, trial sails, activities and live presentation of the on-water action. 

Single handers £65, double handers £75

Training day £37 per boat (1 or 2-crew)

And, as it is just too cold to think about summer sailing at the moment (in lieu of the £10 early bird discount having just ended) all entries received between now and the end of May will receive a £10 voucher to redeem at the WPNSA cafe during the event.
