UK Winter Championships at The Oxford Blue, UKRS Aero UK Winter Championships at The Oxford Blue
Oxford Sailing Club, Farmoor
Saturday 16th February 2019
The RS Aeros will once again include the Oxford Blue as our UK Winter Championship with its great day of racing and central location.
The Oxford Blue will form part the RS Aero UK Winter Series and the national Selden SailJuice Winter Series.
In 2017 and 2018 we have had a tremendous entry of 40-50 RS Aeros enjoying this early season event, providing great Class racing in addition to the whopping mixed fleet overall PY challenge! Come and join the fleet for an awesome start to the 2019 season!
Registration from: 09:00
Warning signal: 10:55
Format: Three handicap races
Entry fee: £25
These winter events do get booked up in advance so get your entries in early!
Oxford is a very central location. The handicap fleets are split, so we are on a startline with similar speed boats. Average lap racing is used minimising waiting time in between races. The 150 boat mixed class entry is scored on one results sheet making for an intriguing PY challenge!
The 3 race format provides a good day's racing - the perfect spring board from which to launch your new season!
