Great 8 at South Staffs Preview

Nigel Scott - 14th March 2015

The Great 8 Lark Series will start with one of the Larks favourite venues... South Staffs, next weekend (21st/22nd March). Offering some of the top home grown competition in the country, fantastic food and tea on tap, and a social that only the South Staffs girls and boys know how to throw.

This year for the first time in some time, we return to a 2 day event, with 6 hotly contested races, with a chance to get a head start in the new Great 8 series. Entry will only be 22, and many of the South Staff members have already offered beds/floor space for visitors, plus free camping for the more hardy amongst you; so this will be a fun and sociable weekend of sailing that won't break the bank. On the Saturday night there will be a social at the club with food, music and drinks (competitively priced but not included in the entry fee). The finer details are:
