Ranelagh Sailing Club, Embankment, London, SW15 1LB
An event organised specifically for the CVRDA, using CVRDA handicaps but not part of the CVRDA Travellers Trophy series.
Jack Holt, born 100 years ago in 1912, remains one of the most important designers and builders of sailing dinghies. His career started when a syndicate of Ranelagh sailors commissioned a new 14ft dinghy, the first Merlin-Rocket. Jack’s workshop was established 100 yards upriver from Ranelagh and it became the birthplace of a large number of sailing dinghies. Jack Holt designs include: Cadet, Enterprise, GP14, Heron, Hornet, Merlin Rocket, Miracle, Mirror, Mirror, Solo, Streaker, Vagabond and several others. To celebrate Jack’s 100th birthday, Ranelagh SC will host a Tideway Race on 7th October towards Central London, open to all dinghies designed or built by Jack Holt.
