The aim is to have a fun and exciting weekend with the hope of attracting a complete range of competitors to the Championship from young cadets to seasoned sailors.

This year's first prize will be a Topaz Uno Mylar Race Main provided by Topper Sailboats, worth £400, as well as other great prizes from Ronstan, and every entry will receive a FREE JIB* from Topper International!
