To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, we have joined forces with other Island Yacht and sailing clubs, led by RYS, to offer a programme of yacht and dinghy events over the jubilee weekend.
The prime aim of the QDJ regatta is to raise money for the three nominated charities, Earl Mountbatten Hospice, Island Youth Water Activity Centre (IYWAC) and the Ocean Youth Trust.
Details of all the events across the clubs can be found at http://www.qdjregatta.co.uk/eventsites/default_s.asp?eventid=118856
Here at Gurnard, we will be running the Fastnet dinghy race on sat 2nd June and a 2 day dinghy regatta on 3/4June. This will include a section for classic dinghies.
The Fastnet Dinghy Race is a long distance race, this year to the west, for dinghies with a PY number of 1200 or less. First start time not before 12.30.
Gurnard Classic Dinghy and Queens Diamond Jubilee Regatta is a 2 day open regatta with 2 races per day and a seperate start and prizes for classic dinghies (those designed before 1965 and/or built before 1985) All dinghy classes are welcome.
