The OK River Championships 2018 will take place at Upper Thames Sailing Club from Saturday 26 to Monday 28 May.
UTSC is located on one of the best sailing reaches on the River Thames, with a mile-long stretch between Bourne End and islands below Marlow Lock, incorporating the widest part of the non-tidal river. This 3-day event will be part of Bourne End Week, UTSC’s annual regatta that has been running since 1888.
Six races for OKs will be scheduled, with the planned times of the warning signal for each race as:
Saturday 26th 11.10 and 14.55
Sunday 27th 09.55 and 14.05
Monday 28th 09.55 and 14.05
There are social events planned for all evenings with a Mexican-themed welcome meal on Friday, a paella night, a cocktail party, a Moroccan-themed dinner and an authentic Indian curry on Monday night.
Camping will be available on the UTSC site on selected days before and during the event for participants. It has to be pre-booked and no electrical hook up will be provided.
The entry fee for an OK is £38 if booked on-line by 20 May (this fee includes one ticket to the Saturday paella night, and also includes two regatta OK class races on the Tuesday should you wish to stay for the full regatta).
Please also book on-line for the social events.
