The YMP are pleased to announce that Brookes Bell have agreed that YMP members may join their Mariteam 20th Anniversary Spring Series of dinghy sailing races at the Docklands Sailing Centre .
Tuesdays: 28th April, 12th May, 26th May, 9th June; and Mondays: 22rd June and 6th July (final and BBQ). The first race on each evening will be at 7pm (but please arrive at around 6pm to allow time to rig and get to the start line).
Docklands Sailing & Watersports Centre, 235A Westferry Road, London, E14 3Q.
How it works:
YMP members are invited to enter teams of two or three people, generally one helm and 2 crew. The racing is in Bosun dinghies. There will be 2 or 3 races each evening.
There will be no training or tuition so each team must have at least one experienced dinghy sailor who is willing to helm. Buoyancy aids are provided, otherwise participants will need to bring their own sailing clothing (on a warm evening this may only need to be shorts/t-shirt and shoes you can get wet – a waterproof jacket may also be advisable).
The races will be followed by drinks in the Club Bar. On the final night (6th July), there will also be a prize giving and BBQ.
The cost per team is £25 per evening, payable on the day. Cost to be split between participants.
Boats need to be arranged in advance. Please let Victoria Waite at firstname.lastname@example.org know if you would like to enter a team by the Wednesday before each event (so, 22rd April, 6th May, 20th May, 3rd June, 17th June, and 1st July). If you are unable to make up a full team, please let Victoria know and she will try to match you up with other members. Please let her know in particular if you are able and willing to helm.
