We are extremely excited to announce that entry is open for the RS Class Association’s first RS200 Women’s Weekend at Itchenor Sailing Club on 9/10th July.
We are also delighted to announce that as well as RS200 legend and 2018 National Champion Helm Maria Stanley we will also have Twice National Champion Crew Maddy Anderson on board to help run the weekend. We cannot thank Maria and Maddy enough for their support.
The weekend will allow the females of the RS200s to get together for some informal racing and training, celebrating the talent of the women in our fleet. It will be inclusive, collaborative, and a great time all round.Included in the weekend fee will be an AIX Rosé sponsored reception at Itchenor Sailing Club on Saturday, followed by a dinner in the clubhouse.
For female RS200 sailors who would like to be included in the weekend, but are unable to sail, e.g. due to injury or retirement from sailing, we will be offering a limited number of tickets for the AIX Rosé Reception and Dinner only.
This is an exciting initiative for the class which we hope will give more females the confidence to helm. It is set to be a thoroughly enjoyable weekend and we extend huge gratitude to Maria Stanley, Maddy Anderson, Itchenor Sailing Club, AIX Rosé and to event organiser Bethan Matthew.
