29 May 2017
Severn Sailing Club, River Avon, Bredon's Norton, Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, GL20 7HD
The Avon River Rally is on Bank Holiday Monday 29th May 2017 at Severn Sailing Club, Bredon’s Norton, Near Tewkesbury GL20 7HD
The event is a Long Distance ‘Picnic Race’, approx. 9mile round trip with a stop for Lunch at Tewkesbury CSC (bar and Galley usually open at TCSC)
Briefing 10.30AM, Starting Window 11AM to 11.20AM
Entry fee £5 per boat plus a £1 donation to the RNLI per sailor.
The river is quite narrow so not suited to the biggest dinghies (up to about 16’ is ok – Fireballs have been sailed successfully). There is also the motorway bridge at Bredon to get under, most dinghies have no issues getting under this (a Zenith with a 23’7’’ mast is fine), I’ve spoken to the navigation authority to get a proper clearance figure, after much head scratching they said “25’ at normal summer levels” but I think this would be cutting it fine as we worked this out for ourselves last year (sorry Chris!).
Teas available at SSC following completion of the race.
Free camping/camper vans on Sunday night, well stocked bar. Sunday night food tbc, I’m thinking either a BYO BBQ or a fish supper (I’ll take orders and collect from Tewkes) – any preferences?
CVRDA Boats are invited to join the club racing at SSC on Sunday 29th May (starts at 11.30am, 1.30pm & 3.30pm).
NOR, SI and further info (inc how to find us) will be available soon at http://www.severnsailing.org.uk
