TIME FOR THE KEN DYE CUP

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

This coming Wednesday evening sees the sixth and penultimate 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 28 July we hold one of our unique races - for the Ken Dye Cup.  The course will take you to the finish line but....when you get there you round the ODM and head back the way you came!  It's simpler than you think....another first for Gunfleet.

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

 

Latest Reports

Gunfleet Sailing Club held its annual Regatta, sponsored by Orsted Energy and Odiin Recruitment, over the weekend of 20 & 21 July with twenty-eight boats taking part in an offshore wind and a mixture of sunshine and clouds.

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.
