Lymington Christmas Stadium Racing, Hampshire, UK
Lymington Christmas Stadium Racing - Saturday 14th December
Keith Willis will kindly PRO our festive short course racing again at the top of the river following the success of our previous editions. Entry is open and visitors are welcome.
At the top of the tide, in the quiet season after the moorings are clear of lead luggers and river traffic is minimal, a good area is available for racing in the confines of the river - and fun spectator sport for those ashore too! A tight course will be laid at the top of the river, likely opposite the pontoons and the club! Otherwise downstream if the wind dictates for better racing. Perfect for practicing your close quarters racing and manoeuvres whilst keeping warm with a busy tempo!
The racing will be Class racing, in limited flights with quick fire short sprint style races. Excellent starting practice with up to 8 races over 2 hours! Bring all your rigs so there is flexibility to choose on the day, depending on fleet spread and conditions. Qualifier rounds and a grand final may be held as appropriate.
