Open Regatta – 2019 MSC CASTLEGATE SECURITY OPEN DINGHY REGATTA, OK NORTHERNS and the MBSA DINGHY REGATTA – 17/18 AUGUST.
Due to the strong wind weather forecast for this weekend the MSC Committee have prudently postponed this event until September 14th – 15th. Details Later.
Dinghy Racing is taking place every Sunday as per the Sailing Programme. Sunday saw nine sailors competing in the race programme and enjoying the light and variable easterly wind on the lovely Morecambe Bay.
Thanks go to Chris Spicer who sacrificed his racing result to coach some of the less experienced racers.
