Harken D-Zero 5th Anniversary UK Open and National Championships 2019 – Entry now open

Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy
21-23 June 2019

 

 

You don’t want to miss this. It’s going to be big. It’s going to be epic.

Based at the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy (WPNSA), host of the 2012 Olympic Games regatta, the 2019 Harken D-Zero UK National and Open Championships is shaping up to be the best one yet. What are we proposing?

The racing

  • 8 races over 3 days with racing both inside Portland Harbour and outside in Weymouth Bay. The harbour is 2 miles square with ample room for full-size championship courses and no tide. The bay offers some of the best conditions in the country with just superb waves.
  • In addition to the Olympic regatta, the WPNSA hosts several major championships a year so expect race management second-to-none.
  • As we will be welcoming our D-Zero friends from the continent we will be competing for both the Open Championship and the UK National Championship.
  • A number of charter boats may be available. Please contact David Valentine at https://www.dzero.co.uk/ if interested.

Shoreside

We’re going to be organising loads of stuff to keep you amused while we’re off the water. Some of the highlights are:

  •  Friday night meal at the Balti Island ( https://baltiisland.co.uk/ ). We’ve booked out the entire restaurant for the evening. This is in easy walking distance of the WPNSA with the added benefit of being only a few steps away from the legendary Cove Inn.
  • Saturday night BBQ at the WPNSA included within the entry fee.
  • Buddy system with prizes.
  • D-Zero fantasy league and other on-shore tomfoolery. With the number of boats expected from north of the border I’m sure we can organise some England v Scotland v Rest of the World games (OK, darts).
  • Plus there’s loads for the non-sailing members of the family to do – https://www.visit-dorset.com/explore/towns/weymouth
  • Free parking on-site at WPNSA.
