The Annual East Coast Race will be held on 21 July. 

This year we are returning to an old haunt, Stone Sailing Club on the River Blackwater, for the race and prizegiving. We will be starting and finishing at Stone S.C.  Visiting boats can moor near the club overnight before and after the event or sail over on Saturday morning. We will start on the ebb as usual around 11:00 a.m. which will give the fleet some time to get to seaward for a long course towards the Wallet and Clacton.  In the evening there will be a prize-giving and informal dinner.  Stone SC will be providing a ferry on Friday and Saturday for boats without tenders.

We are also hoping to run a separate race for small boats on the Saturday afternoon.  Trailer sailors can launch / recover at Stone without difficulty.

On Sunday, boats participating in the Summer Cruise will make their way over to Brightlingsea for the Safari Supper. See the full plans for the week here: Annual Summer Cruise.
