Boxing Day at WWSC

Boxing Day at Weir Wood is always special. Join us for the ever-popular Boxing Day race (one race, 11am start). Work off the figgy pudding and enjoy the Boxing Day race with your friends. Everyone welcome whether you want to race or just socialise off the water. Rachael, Annie and Simon will be offering mince pies and mulled wine, and there will be prizes for the first youth helm, first youth crew and best-dressed boat.

2000 Fleet

TrainingThe 2000 is bigger on all key dimensions and consequently has more space, seating and carries more crew weight than an RS200. It is much easier to sail and less ‘tippy’. The roller-reefing jib and reefing main make it more family friendly and suitable for cruising and holiday use. Importantly for the club, it is just within the sights of an ambitious beginner. Whilst it is slower and heavier to recover from a capsize than the 200, an adult and small child can recover the 2000 from inverted. The 2000 has been around for a few years and being the fastest growing 2-handed racer in the UK already offers good close racing and large fleets (50 boats at the Nationals and 22 at Weir Wood’s open meeting). Both classes are really exciting to sail in a strong wind.
