Teams will get their chance to compete in the British Keelboat League with a qualifier hosted by the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club in Essex on the 8th and 9th June 2019. The club’s earliest objective was “to encourage amateur yacht sailing” and the RCYC has a history of one design racing dating back to the 19th century, making it a great club for hosting a British Keelboat League event. The club looks forward to welcoming teams from across the eastern region.
Entering this event will give teams the chance to experience racing in the Hunter 707 keelboat. The weekend will comprise a fleet of Hunter 707’s and up to 12 teams from local clubs competing in quickfire “sprint” races, each lasting around 15 minutes. Races will be umpired, and teams will rotate between boats in the fleet throughout the weekend of racing. By Sunday afternoon every team will have competed in approximately 12 races and the top 3 teams identified for qualification to the national final. The 2019 final will be hosted by Royal Thames Yacht Club later in the year.
This event is a great opportunity for sailors to get together and race, representing their club at an event, without the hassle of transporting your own boat around the UK. The cost of entry for this qualifier at Royal Corinthian Yacht Club on the 8th and 9th June 2019 is £300 per team. All you need to do is enter your team and arrive at the club ready for racing on the Saturday morning!
Please note: For this qualifier, 5 crew members are required. This is a BKL requirement.
