Charity Pursuit Race 2017

The Charity Pursuit Race onSunday 29th October is scheduled towards the end of the Winter Series to give a breakfrom the 'serious' racing. A fun event for everyone - both on and off the water- raising funds for the Commodore`s Charity, the RSYC Charitable Trust.The Club was awarded charitable status to help promote and develop dinghysailing, which will focus on the Club`s fleet of dinghies at the Gins clubhouseand to offer sailing in conjunction with SWAC.

Racing is open to both racers and cruisers and starts off Netley Buoy, with the first warning signal scheduled for 10.00hrs Each boat will set off separately according to her handicap; slowest first, ona course calculated so that, in theory, they may all finish together. We aim for racing to be around two and a half hours - mainly in Southampton Water and may include some central Solent marks if conditions allow. Since the time limit will be 40 minutes after the first finisher, the last could be at about 1310hrs.

After racing, the party goes back to the clubhouse, to which all the family are welcome. If you are racing, you can get your family and friends to join afterwards.

There will also be a raffle with some great prizes and a sweepstake on the day`s racing - so you could recoup your entry fee!

Last but not least, why not stay for a delicious carvery lunch served from midday.

The proceeds of the raffle and the majority of the race entry fees all go to the Commodore's Charity - the RSYC Charitable Trust
