Dart Open 2014


It’s not long now until the Dart Open 2014 which will be held over the Easter weekend (18th, 19th and 20th April).

This years event has the luxury of afternoon starts that gives plenty of time to recover from the legendary Dee SC parties of which there are two this year. There will also be plenty going on during the day with the bar being open and a garden party being held on the Saturday afternoon.

It would be great to have a good number of local and club sailors sailing at this years event. If there is anything stopping you from sailing and you would like to take part feel free to let me know and I shall do my best to get you on the water. For those who use facebook there is a group for sailors needing a boat or crew, alternatively you can get me on dart18@dee-sc.co.uk

There will be some top level racing taking part at this years open with world, national and European champions past and present no doubt taking part, but don’t let that put you off taking part if you’re not quite as quick around the race course. The Dart 18 fleet is possibly the friendliest and most welcoming fleet around and there will plenty of sailors of all abilities taking part. Entering and event like this is the best way to learn and practice your skills and EVERYONE is welcome.

I am trying to get an idea of numbers from Dee Sailing Club who are entering and it would be great if you could let me know your intentions.
