The Bowmoor Optimist Open and South West Zone squad indicator will take place on 12th and 13th September 2015. We will train on the Saturday and race on the Sunday.
Sailors wishing to be considered for the South West Zone Squad will need to attend both days. The training will be lead by the SW Head Coach who will use this plus the results from racing and the results from the RYA Zone Champs to make the selection. Sailors should enter for the training and racing Main Fleet option even if they have not raced in the Main Fleet before. For more information on the selection process please follow this link:


The training and racing is of course also open to other sailors too. If you have started sailing this season and want to start racing at club level or beyond then this is the ideal event for you! On Saturday our friendly coaches get you race ready for the Sunday with useful drills, race start practice and explanations about the flags and rules. On Sunday you will have your own Regatta Fleet briefing and lots of support out on the water to get you round the course. You will get to make new friends and have lots of fun! You should enter the Racing and Training Regatta Fleet option.

For more experienced sailors we will have coaches on hand to train you and help push you to the next level. Whether you have just started racing seriously and attending national events or are hoping to get selected for Development, Intermediate or National Squad, we will tailor the training on Saturday to your needs and you will get to race against lots of other sailors at your level on the Sunday. You should enter the Racing and Training Main Fleet option. For those who just wish to race in the Bowmoor Open on Sunday then please enter the racing only Main Fleet option.  

Campers for the weekend are very welcome. We have room for tents, caravans, camper vans and tents. There is no electric hook up but you have access to the club house with hot showers, toilets, fridge, kettle and microwave. We look forward to seeing you at Bowmoor!
