The Itchenor 420 Christmas Regatta 10/11 Dec

GBR 420 Class All, Class matters

The Itchenor 420 Christmas Regatta next weekend (10/11 Dec) is the final event of 2016 and of the Olimpic Sails Coached Open Series. Entries will be accepted on the day from 0900 at the clubhouse, with a planned start at 1030 on the Saturday and 1000 on the Sunday. The NoR will be placed on the ISC and 420 Class websites this week. The plan is to follow a similar format to last year with 4 to 5 short races per day and to come back ashore 1430 given the time of year and short daylight hours. Great boat handling practice! Alistair Shaw has kindly agreed to be the Race Officer again this year and I know will run a good regatta.

Unfortunately there is a major social event in the club in the evening but if you are looking for accommodation I recommend that you contact the club office as soon as possible – contact details at

If you are planning to sail please could you just let me ( and Linda Keers ( know so that we can gauge numbers.
