GJW Direct Belle Isle Open at Penzance - 25/26 Aug

Chris Whitehouse - 18th August 2012

Ah, sea sailing, remember that? The thrill of the surf, the long reaches, the strong steady breezes, the sound of seagulls at 6:00 in the morning… How we miss it.

Well, here’s your perfect opportunity to get that fix; Penzance Sailing Club is hosting a GJW Direct Belle Isle Open over weekend of 25th/26th August.

Cannily positioned over the bank holiday weekend, a 12:30 start on Saturday for two back to back races, and three back to back races on Sunday starting at 11:00, should allow plenty of time to make a long weekend of it, and enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer.

The club has a burgeoning and enthusiastic Lark fleet who are pulling out all the stops to ensure visitors have a superb time. There’s even a sponsored social, with local firm ‘Intersys’ kindly paying for a hot local band – ‘Dolphin Fly’ for the Saturday evening. Cheap accommodation has also been arranged at only £10 per night! (Please give Laura Mitchell a call on 07929082128, to book).

To further save on costs, special parking has been arranged for any double stackers and trailers required.

And all this for a £30 entry fee – which includes a sailors supper on Saturday night! What a bargain.

What more could you want? Great venue, fantastic social, and a warm welcome from one of the friendliest Lark fleets on the circuit – its gonna be a winner!
