Cruising and racing events 2017
The 2017 sailing season has a varied selection of racing and cruising opportunities for our members and guests. We would like to encourage as many members as possible to take part in these racing and cruising events. Check out below what’s lined up and let us have your feedback.
The combined clubs races are open to cruising yachts from any of the participating clubs and entry is free. We would love to see a turnout of at least three PMSC boats in each race. This is a great opportunity to hone sailing skills while competing against others and, as an added incentive, the best performing PMSC boat in each race wins a PMSC trophy!
There is a selection of cruising events, which we have tried to make as varied as possible to include day sailing as well as overnight cruises to more distant locations. Take a look, let us know if any of these appeal to you and if not, let us know of any other ideas you may have. We would love to hear from you.
And of course we also have the ever-popular Smack & Working Boat race, the Barge Match and the Pin Mill SC Regatta, dates confirmed as follows:
Barge Match -1st July
PMSC Regatta – 9th September
Smack & Working Boat Race - 16th September
There is also a time trial that can be undertaken by anyone at any time between 1st April and the 1st October. Click here for details..

The first sailing event is Saturday 6th May - a passage match to Erwarton Ness starting at 10am from the Clubhouse. The Race Officer is Nigel Bailey and there will be a briefing in the Bar Friday night at 20:45. For those not able to attend the briefing pl let Steve Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org) know with details of handicap based on the RYA NHC base list.
The race will be followed by a beach BBQ - please bring your own cooking equipment, food and drink. There will be a water taxi, courtesy of Ian Saunders.
For those not sailing round you can still attend the BBQ. Access via William Wrinch farmland has been agreed. Go down the lane opposite the old Erwarton Queen pub.
Hope to see you there!
EAORA Shipwash Race and Time Trials
I felt a bit of explanation for two of the items in the summer sailing programme might be of help to some of the newer members, as well as some of old lags who have forgotten all about the Shipwash Race and the art of the time-trials.
