These races consistently attract some of the biggest fleets in the Channel Islands, and make for a real spectacle in the Little Russel off St Peter Port over the coming weeks.
This weekend actually starts with race two as the season’s opener last Saturday did not take place due to the weather, and the remaining races are a fortnight apart up to the end of March. Following each race there will be a reception in the Royal Channel Island Yacht Club, and the final prize follows the final event on the 28 March at the Royal Channel Island Yacht Club.
Gordon Wilson, director of Heritage, as well as a leading skipper, said it promises to be exciting. ‘With six more races scheduled and a maximum discard of two races, the skippers who demonstrate consistently good results will be the winners. It will be an enjoyable next three months.’
Entry forms are available from the Royal Channel Island Yacht Club or the Guernsey Yacht Club, and the race dates are as follows:
