In 2011 we had 160 boats!! This year’s Nationals at Tenby was a sell out months ahead of the event, and with the RS200 the ship of choice for the Endeavour champion of champions Trophy, we’re expecting a massive entry featuring a who’s who of dinghy sailing along with sailors at every level representing clubs across the UK.
The WPNSA site will be dressed up for the Regatta, with a vibrant Sailors' Village - think Cowes Week but with dinghy sailors and cheaper beer! There will, of course, be socials every night, with our usual mix of entertainment. There will be the famous RS200 fancy dress party (let us know if you have a good idea for the theme), the ever-popular black tie finale, plus everything in between to suit the diversity of the fleet, from youth social, to masters meal.
Talking of diversity – the RS200 class isn’t just about the top end sailors, the gold/silver/bronze fleet system will ensure the prizes get shared around and we’ll be running our well-established buddy scheme, where bronze fleet sailors could be lucky enough to be paired up with a National Champion or even an Olympian.
We join the party, sailing from Mon 20th August to Fri 24th August, with most sailors expected to arrive a day or two early to catch up with friends, sort their boats and generally take in the atmosphere of this huge event.
When we are there, we will be sharing the site with the RS400s, RS500s, RS600s and RS Vareos, all overlapping our Championship at various points – a great opportunity to catch up with your mates across the fleets and make new friends both within and outside of the RS200 class.
Have a look at the calendar above to see whole story.
