24 Hour Race
Start Time: 8 September 2018
End Time: 9 September 2018
“The UK's No.1 dinghy endurance race.
“The 24 Hour Race is the premiere opportunity for Sailing Club teams to
compete for serious trophies (and status), whilst also enjoying the unique
hospitality provided by one of the best social events in the dinghy racing
calendar so make sure you join us for the Friday night!
“The race is sailed on the relatively safe waters of the Marine Lake at
Southport, and racing is continuous for 24 Hours even in extreme weather
conditions. Entries are accepted from Sailing Clubs, Class Associations and
Universities throughout the UK, with past visits from Eire, France and even the
USA. Crew, equipment and sail changes are permitted during the race (but only
in a specially designated docking area).
“The 24 Hour Race, now in its 50th year, is sailed in classic dinghies
(Enterprise, GP14, Lark and Firefly); and has opportunities for Masters, Ladies
and University teams to compete for special prizes, whilst also being on equal
terms with all other teams.”
