Poole AB 60th anniversary regatta

Post by Woods Designs » Tue Jul 24, 2018 11:07 pm

Not a CVRDA event, but I hope its still acceptable to post here:

One of the events I have been looking forward to all year is the Poole AB 60th anniversary regatta to be held at Parkstone YC on September 8th.

The Poole AB has always been a great small teaching/racing dinghy for children and is actively sailed at Parkstone. I understand that all 89 boats based there will be out sailing for the Parade of Sail. But not until there have been a couple of races between old sailors and new.

I won the National Championships in 1968 sailing AB50 and I am very fortunate that the current owners are allowing me to race it again, 50 years later.

The following is from the Poole AB website http://www.pooleab.co.uk/

1958 -2018 : Celebrating 60 Years of the Poole AB Dinghy
Parkstone Yacht Club is home to a fleet of over 80 AB Dinghies
On SATURDAY 8th SEPTEMBER 2018 we will mark 60 years of introducing children to sailing with a special AB event
* Pro-AM AB Race – AB Kids Vs AB Alumni
*Veterans’ AB Race – Former AB sailors to re-live the glory
*AB Parade of Sail – PYC Commodore to take the salute from the box
*Evening event – Food, drink & entertainment
