Overy Open coming up…
Overy Staithe Sailing Club
International OK Dinghy Open Meeting
July 2nd and 3rd 2022
The officers and committee of Overy Staithe Sailing club are delighted to invite sailors to their annual OK Open meeting in 2022.
Yes! It’s an early start 0730 Briefing for 0830 start on the Saturday and 0900 on the Sunday but that just leaves so much more time for exploring the local area, beaches, pubs and restaurants.
Yes! Principle Race Officer Andy Turner and his support crew will try their best to get the racing out at sea. This will be dependant upon wind strength and direction but if not possible then racing will be held in the harbour.
Yes! It’s likely to be the cheapest open meeting you will attend this year. You can transfer £10 to the bank details given in the NOR or you can stuff a tenner in an old brown envelope and give it to the person with the clipboard outside the boathouse on the Saturday morning. It would be very helpful if you could let Andy Turner if you are coming by emailing him at [email protected]
Yes! You will have the opportunity to learn from the best sailors. In the past this event has been attended by OK class World Champions, World Championship race winners, National Champions, National Championship race winners and even North West Norfolk Dinghy week winners.
Yes! The early start means an early departure is possible on the Sunday. You can beat the traffic home and be well rested for work on Monday.
Yes! As Secretary Mary always says……Overy Staithe is great socially! The class has always been famed for its friendliness and camaraderie.
I can’t think of any further positives at this time but there must be many.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in Norfolk.
