Blithfield Barrel 2019/20
This winter sees the 16th running of the original winter sailing series - The Blithfield Barrel. All monohulls with a PN greater than 860 are welcome. Racing is run in accordance with the RYA Average lap racing guidelines, if it gets too busy, we will use two consecutive flights to ease start line congestion. Races are at 12:00 and 14:00 with food available between races and the bar open afterwards. We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back for the best winter series in the Midlands!
