Changes to the Sussex Regatta 2015
The format of the Sussex Regatta 2015 has been decided and there will be a number of changes. This year we plan to widen the Sussex Regatta to include everyone who loves sailing.
The first important difference is that we will be offering dinghy classes to enable dinghy clubs to enter the event.
Racing will be held over just two day, the Saturday and Sunday, with 3 races planned each day.
Instead of using the SCCH (Sussex Combined Clubs Handicap), the Regatta will use - in addition to the IRC fleets - the NHC (National Handicap for Cruisers) system developed by the RYA.
We will be holding separate events for cruising yachts who would like to participate but do not wish to mix with committed racers.
Online entry will be opening soon. Keep watching this space.
Most importantly we are planning a great deal of fun ashore, which it is hoped that friends, family and everyone interested will want to enjoy. There will be bands and bars along with fun and games for all. We have two floors of yacht club all devoted to the regatta, with bars, beers, music, food for sailors and supporters alike.
Premier Marinas at Sovereign Harbour is supporting the event with free berthing for entrants and half price for the following week. Accommodation lists are available for those who come to enjoy the shore side or do not wish to sleep aboard.
Even if the weather does not favour us we have lots of room indoors so will still have a great weekend, I urge you not to miss it. It will be one to remember.
