We had 80 boats last year and hope to beat that record this time around.

PRO for main fleet will be: Ian Bullock, who ran our Open very successfully last year, delivering 8 very fair and efficient races over 2 days.

The regatta fleet will be coached, and sailors who are new to racing are warmly welcomed.

The event is the third in the Southern Traveller Series.

The next event on the Rooster Southern Traveller Series is taking place on the 16th/17th April at Royal Victoria Yacht Club on the Isle of Wight and is open for entries in both regatta and main fleet. For those keen to test their skills honed over the winter as part of the various squads or keen to get a result in the Rooster Southern Traveller Series, you can be assured of a warm welcome to the club.
