UK Nationals – New date and venue!

We have had to change the dates and venue of our National Championships.
The reason for this that we have been advised that the local conditions at Highcliffe are such that launching & recovering plus sailing to/from the sailing area may prove very difficult for the Flying Dutchman especially in adverse weather conditions Therefore in the best interests of the class the decision was made to abandon the idea of going to Highcliffe and instead go to Lake Bala in North Wales & hold our Championship as part of the clubs August Bank Holiday Regatta. Bala S. C. last hosted our Championships back in 2006 and the club have always made the class very welcome whenever we have been there in the past.

Here is a preliminary notice to say…………. The 2013 British Open National Championships will be held on lake Bassenthwaite in our beautiful lake district. 9 races over 5 days from the 3rd – 7th August as part of Bassenthwaite Week.
