Sailing and canoeing on the River Thames in Kingston

Regatta 2020

Updated 7.20pm Friday 4 September 2020

The Minima Yacht Club Annual Regatta is now less than 18 hours away!

We have 25 boats entered – please check your details on the entry list below (inlcuding PY rating for the General Handicap fleet and New Sailors’ Race).

Please arrive in good time for a briefing at 1pm in or near the dinghy park – only helms to attend please so we can maximise social distancing.  There will be three starts for each race with the first start for the General Handicap fleet scheduled at 2pm, followed by Solos and then by Enterprises and Lasers.

The New Sailors race will be held immediately following the second race on Saturday, but not before 4pm, followed by the barbecue – this is ‘sold out’ so if you have not paid for a ticket with your entry I am afraid we won’t be able to accomodate you.
Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow,
Paul Bloomfield, Commodore
