GJW Direct Open at Lyme Regis - Preview

Laura Lily - 25th July 2014

Big Sea Sailing in Lyme

The last event before the big one! Lyme Regis open will be August 2nd and 3rd joining in with their annual regatta. Registration on Saturday is between 9am and 12pm. The first warning signal will be at 12.25 with three races scheduled for the first day.
In the evening there will be a BBQ, but be quick as tickets are limited. You can buy these when you enter. See poster for full details.

Parking is always a bit of a problem at Lyme - there is a car park about 100 yards away from the club to the West, for about 8 per day. It tends to fill up very quickly on a Summer's day. But there is also a bigger, cheaper car park at the top of the hill behind the club -its disadvantage is that it is about 150 feet vertically above the club but it is a lot cheaper!

Trailers will be stored on the beachhead a few yards from the harbour. You will be able to drop your boats off at the Cobb (harbour) - ideally leaving your sailing gear with the boat and then go off and park your car.

The weekend looks set to be a great one with Larks, Fireballs, Phantoms, Cruisers, Luggers and many more boats in attendance and hopefully this lovely weather will stick around with some breeze! See you all at Lyme Regis.
