Previous events at Brightlingsea have always been well organised and a fair test of competitors skills. The club and its’ members have always been the best of hosts and we look forward to another great weekend.
The North Sails Super series is contested over six events with 4 to count. The remaining events are the soon to follow National Championships at Herne Bay on 21st to 24th September and Northampton in early November. Competitors are reminded that in order to be in with a chance of winning the fabulous main prize then they must compete in the National Championships at Herne Bay.
The class is heavily indebted to North Sails for providing the main prize of a new mainsail.
