Summer Evening Racing (West Midlands)

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if any one in the west Midlands area would be interested in doing some mid week summer evening racing ?


I was thinking something along the lines of 6:30 to 8:30 (To allow those of use that work chance to attend)


Running from around 20th April till 27th August ( Dates when should be sufficient light)


Also keep races to around 10 minutes max (so short courses) to hopefully get in 8 races each evening.


Class(es) and exact dates, locations etc to be decided based on if anyone is interested.

Cotswold Model Yacht Club could be a suitable venue.


Started out in 150ft schooner. Started out RC sailing with 30 year old IOM, then went to an ASBO, then DF65 X2, and now a new Sedici IOM. The Cotswold Model Yacht Club is a wonderful place to sail with friendly people and lively sailing.

Not really in the West Midlands. Was more thinking within 15-20 miles of centre of Birmingham.


Sadly look like I am the only one who is interested in such an idea.

How about at Bourneville. That is within 3 mile of the City Centre. It is lit to some degree. - has Marks


There is:-


Sutton Park - from the Hotel Side - No Marks

Market Bosworth - a bit more than 10 miles - No Marks


The problem with most night sailing is that the wind often dies off a little


But get it on ... when ???

Bournville would be ideal


As I said from around the end of April on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday may be a couple of times a month till end of August.


By then Sunset is not till 8:30 so if last race ends then would still have enough light to pack up.


Any idea who would need to talk to arrange at Bournville ?
