Sunday 4th February
The Starcross Steamer is a great day out at Starcross Sailing Club racing with 80 other mixed class dinghies on the top of the tide. This is the biggest winter sailing event in the South West, sailed on the beautiful Exe estuary.
As the race is one big pursuit race RS Aeros have their own starts and can enjoy a nice class race too, within the main event, whatever the conditions on the day.
Entry Fee: £xx (£xx for juniors). Pay on the day
Catering: From 08:00
First Start: ("tide and time waits for no one!")
Format: 150 minute Pursuit Race
In 2016 the RS Aeros won the Cup too, with 13 RS Aeros entering this popular annual event. Can we win it back again this year?
