Wednesday Evening Series

Covid-19 Wednesday Evenings

During the current situation we are offering an opportunity to competitively sail on a Wednesday evening, starting on 24th June. You need to enter via WebCollect, use the button just under the banner on the Club web site and sign in using your account detail. Please read the Supplementary Sailing Instructions and the Notice of Race which have been amended with effect from 5th April. The overall series results will be calculated from the combined efforts of all the formats used in this series.

‘Normal’ Wednesday Evenings

On Wednesday evenings from April to September there is a single race with three starts:

  • Fast handicap (catamarans, RS800, RS600 etc)
  • Slow double-handers (Flying Fifteen, Laser 2000, Wayfarer, etc)
  • Slow single-handers (Laser, Europe, Solo, etc)

Racing starts at 19:00, with the exception of the first three and last three Wednesdays when, because of limited daylight, the first start is at 18:30. All races are handicap races, with the results based on average corrected lap times. Click through to display racing handicaps in use at Grafham for dinghies, catamarans and keelboats.

Further details of start times and race organisation are published in the Notice of Race and in the Supplementary Sailing Instructions.
