The YMP are pleased to announce that Brookes Bell have agreed that YMP members may join their Mariteam Series of dinghy sailing races at the Docklands Sailing Centre.
Monday:, 28th April, 12th May, 9th June, 23rd June and 7th July. 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).
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).
Food & drink:
The races will be followed by drinks and sandwiches in the Club Bar. On the final night (7th July), there will also be a prize giving and BBQ.
The cost per team is £25 per evening, payable on the day. The cost is to be split between the 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, 23rd April, 7th May, 4th June, 23rd June, and 2 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.
