GUNFLEET'S 2024 REGATTA ARRIVES

........and the Wednesday Evening Racing continues

This coming Wednesday evening sees the fifth race of the Gunfleet Summer Series; commencing at 7:00 p.m. and it's followed by bacon baps and a drink at the bar....mmmm - nice.

Then on Sunday 21 July we throw our doors open at the Gunfleet 2024 Regatta.  A whole day of racing, hot food lunchtime, and drinks at the bar; a great day for everyone.

There is always so much going on down at the Gunfleet.

 

Latest Reports

Gunfleet Sailing Club members made the most of the fine weather last Wednesday evening, 17 July, when they eagerly rigged-up for the fifth race in the Summer Series.  A force 3 - 4 onshore wind greeted the competitors as they headed out to the start line, and with a flood tide holding them back against their first leg up the coast, it was hoped that nobody would “jump the line”.  Unfortunately, with the necessary reaching start, both Derroll Pedder and Brian Allen were just a little too eager, in their RS Aeros, and crossed the line a second too early.

Gunfleet Sailing Club members found it hard to believe it was July when they took part in the 3-in-1 multi-race for the Tee Dee Challenge Trophy on Sunday 7 July 2024; a force 5 to 6 south/south-westerly wind, heavy cloud, and below average seasonal temperature greeting them.
