Under The Smoke Regatta 15-16 July

Bowmoor Sailing Club is situated about 1 mile from the threshold of RAF Fairford, close to the display area for the Air Show.  This creates challenges and opportunities.  Over the RIAT weekend we have a significant increase in road traffic, a major increase in aircraft noise, and occasionally a reduction in visibility as coloured display smoke drifts across the lake.    What our membership enjoys is the sailing and watching the flying with many camping on site throughout the weekend.

We are opening up this opportunity to you!

The regatta will comprise a mix of six handicap, fleet and pursuit races.  Registration is 09:30 to 10:00 and the first start will not be before 11:00 on 15 July.   The format will provide enough races to constitute a series of 5 races with one discard. Entry will be £15 for single handers and £20 for double handers, £5 discount for juniors, with a £15 camping surcharge camping for non-members covering the weekend (Friday through Sunday) payable via Web Collect or on arrival.
