Young 88 Regatta Reminders - Its Getting Hot Out There .....

Published Tue 30 Jan 2024

Hey all,

The fleets are regrouping after what looked like successful summer sojourns. 

Now it gets real with the build up to the marquee regattas in the North and South.

A couple of requests.

  1. Please hit the links below for more info and register/enter ASAP
    • Avoids use of scarce volunteer time stressing over and chasing entries.
    • If it helps enter early and pay later.
  2. We always have crews interested in charters and sometimes struggle to find owners willing to charter.
    • We have consulted the insurance companies and as long as all parties agree on whatever the arrangement is then there should be no barriers over insurance.
    • Please get in touch if you are willing to put your boat up for a bare boat or owner crewed charter for any of our events.
    • We will also be doing some ringing around looking for suitable boats and owners willing to help us build the entry numbers
