Monday is a practice day utilising the Sunsail F40 yachts and there will be four 'round the cans' races on Tuesday and Wednesday and a passage race on the Thursday.
If you are interested in competing in the event then please reply to Alwyn Evans by 1st December 2016.
Irrespective of what sailing experience you have the team of eight will be selected using various criteria of, experience, suitability, need for various skills etc.
Also looking to bring in new members and give them the experience of racing so it's not a given that previous members of the race team will fill a place in 2017. A balance of compiling a team of experienced crew and training future racing crew members will be strongly considered.
Also looking to achieve one or two days training in April 2017 prior to the event so candidates would need to be available for this as well as the main event.
Usual SPOSC daily sailing charges apply.
