Friday One Design & Sports Boat Mini Twilight Regatta Series
NEW for 2017/18 season is the short Friday Twilight Series scheduled over the peak daylight savings period. The Series is designed for One Design and Sports boats to enjoy windward / leeward races returning to the Edinburgh Bar for some sunset drinks and nibbles. A great event for those that have busy weekends or wish to compete in up to three short sprint races with fellow mates and family. Contact the Sailing Office about leasing a Elliott 7.
