South Staffs Sailing Club 50th Anniversary Open Me

Simon Cox - 04th March 2004

Annual Lark Open Meeting - Sunday 21 March 2004

Start the season with a great weekend in the Midlands! Why not combine this Open with the Shropshire Open on Saturday 20 March?

South Staffs is one of the oldest surviving clubs with its own Lark Fleet that still holds class races every week and its is guaranteed a good turnout. There will be three races on the Sunday to blow away the food and beer from the Saturday night party at the club and you can expect some very close competitive racing.

The club provides some classic inland sailing conditions and is certainly an excellent venue to brush up on your boat handling and shift spotting skills.
