Racing News

Sunday Racing - 2 Race Trial

In order to ensure that the racing at Burghfield continues to as close and exciting as possible the Sailing Committee is planning a short trial of an alternative to the traditional 2 races per day format.

On Sunday the 19th and Sunday 26th June will run 2 shorter races back to back in the morning and a single race in the afternoon. These 6 races will be combined in to a mini series with its own set of prizes.

We very much hope that the regular Sunday racers will come along and give it a go and let us have their feedback.

The Summer series will start two weeks later than usual on the 3rd of July and may adopt this format if it proves popular.
