This Bank Holiday Monday we are holding the rescheduled Hemsley SuperPrix. This is a fun event open to all classes, and a great way to improve your starting and racing skills.
The first start is at 10:30 and there are 4 or 5 short back to back races before lunch, with another 4 or 5 short back to back races after lunch which are scheduled to recommence at 14:00. These are committee boat starts, so good practise for Open Meeting events.
There will be separate starts for three Handicap Classes: Fast, Medium and ‘Not Quite so Fast’. Attached are the sailing instructions for the event.
