RS Multifleet Reunion Regatta and Black-Tie Dinner
Hosted by the RS200 Class Association and Hayling Island Sailing Club, sponsored by RS Sailing
If you have been sailing an RS dinghy for as long as you can remember, or you sailed one 'back in the day' then this event is for you!
Aimed at, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, everyone who was part of the RS family around the first 10 years of RS Racing (1995 -2005) and those who are friends and associates of these sailors, the weekend promises competitive and fun racing, combined with a good dose of banter topped off with a cracking RS style evening of eating, drinking and dancing. It’s all set to be one of those events that you will not want to miss!
There will be 2 days of exciting racing - the first to remember how to steer your RS and the second extended sprint races - long enough to settle in and short enough to keep to exciting! Each will be run as a separate event, so when you sign up online, you can enter either, neither (i.e. just the dinner & party) or both. Entry is £20/day for single-handers and £22.50/day for double-handers
Saturday - The Magnificent RS Pursuit Race
Open to all RS classes from RS Fevas to RS Elites
Starting at 1.30pm and finishing at 4pm
Race course around Chichester harbour to suit the conditions
Sunday – RS Super Sprint Racing
4 x 20-minute sprint races, starting at 10am.
Open to all RS classes from RS Fevas to RS Elites.
Fleet starts for the 2 biggest fleets, and for all fleets with over 10 boats.
Fast and slow handicap fleets for the remainder.
The plan is to be back on shore for around 12.30pm, perfect timing for the famous Hayling Island SC Sunday lunch.
Aimed at RS sailors who sailed an RS class in the first 10 years, there will be prizes for original pairings, sailors who attended the first few Nationals and others. Please come and make the most of this nostalgic weekend.
There will be a charity raffle for our chosen event charity, the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust. To kick start the fundraising the entry form includes the option of a voluntary donation.
