Up River

The next event in our series, is Up River YC, on the river Crouch, over in Essex. Always a fun event on this tidal river with a big home fleet and some great sailors.

This is a two day event, with an informal training day on the Saturday and the series racing on Sunday, plenty of space at the club for camping and there is always a bit of a social on the Saturday evening. Up River lay on some excellent tuition on the Saturday, so if you want to know a bit more about sailing that Lightning get across to Essex, it is a great day of coaching both on and off the water.

Racing on the Sunday takes the usual format with three races, two to count. Up River have some interesting water, with the tidal river, this is the only place we currently sail with such, it’s great fun especially as the tide swings.
