Minisail Class Championships 2016


Minisail Nationals 24/25 June 2016

The Minisail Class Championships will be held this year at Staunton Harold Sailing Club over the weekend of 24/25 June, running as part of a Classic and Vintage Racing Dinghy Association meeting, in which we are also taking part.

Staunton Harold is located in the beautiful Peak District, near a country house, with wonderful walks all around for non sailors. It is centrally located in England, but not too far from European ports!

Camping on site is available from the Friday, free of charge. I’m not sure what the entry fee will be, but it will certainly be inexpensive, making this a very cheap weekend!

Racing will start at 11.30 am on Saturday and run through till Sunday afternoon. If wanted, I can run a short coaching or boat tuning session Saturday morning, first thing. The racing is pretty laid back, and as competitive as you like to make it. Good natured rivalries certainly crop up as the series goes on!

Please let us know if you can come by posting on the Championships 2016 thread on the forum, or by emailing me (rupert.whelan at
