May Day Bank Holiday Weekend 2nd – 4th May
Well, what a lot of sailing. Classic Dayboats and Optimists on Saturday. Optimists, Scows, Cadet Only Mayday Weekend Series (excluding Optimists), Hulse Trophy for Fast and Medium Handicap on Sunday and on Bank Holiday Monday, for those who aren’t doing the Glyn Charles Pursuit Race from HISC, then we have the conclusion of the Weekend Series for the Cadets, Fast and Medium Handicap racing and yes, you’ve guessed it –more Optimist sailing. Goodness, you parents are going to be very good riggers and you Optimist sailors are going to be very experienced.
