Wraysbury Lake Sailing Club will host a special event to celebrate Jack Holt’s centenary on the weekend of 7th, 8th July 2012.

We will require pre-registration and if we become oversubscribed a reserve list may be required. Boats that have not registered will not be able to attend. There will be a first come first served system for classes that become over subscribed. Roger is going to be in charge of boat registration. Boats selected will be asked for an entry fee of £15 for a single hander or £25 for a double hander to confirm their entry into this event. So request your entry now by completing THIS FORM!

We will need to limit the number of boats to under fifty and it is hoped to represent all of the dinghies that Holt designed or built. (see below for list). Some examples may be difficult or impossible to locate but we want to try. We would like to have a spread from the earliest examples from a class to a modern version to show the development of his work. For instance Enterprises no 1 and 2 exist and the owners have expressed interest in this event. An up to date version would make an interesting contrast. With development classes like the National 12s his involvement was a little more limited and only a few Holt 12s exist still (possibly as few as one or two). He was the original designer for the Merlins and dominated the fleet till Proctor became the leading name.

The two day event will include points races, maybe a pursuit, concours and display of boats and hopefully photo/information display etc. There is a nice camping area on site etc. Please help to make this a special event to celebrate someone who made such a contribution to the dinghy sailing world.
