"This year Cardiff University Sailing Club will be hosting the first ever Western Regional Training event, Western Warmer at Cardiff Bay Yacht Club.
There will be two paid coaches (TBC) providing one day of high-quality coaching and a second day of coached round-robin racing.
The event will take place in two flights of boats with one coach on the water and the other onshore to discuss theory, firefly set-up and boat speed whilst teams are ashore.
The event is targeted at new members and less experienced team racers aiming to kick-start their year of training.
As this will be the first year of the event, and to maximise the benefit of the two coaches, entries will be limited to eight teams on a first come first served basis. Although (as at Qualifiers) if the event is oversubscribed the first team to be entered will be given priority over any subsequent entries from the same institution.
Entries will open shortly so please keep your eyes out!!
If you have any questions please contact either Nathan Sturges on Nath.email@example.com!”

Exeter Excalibur will run from the 18-20th March 2022 and will additionally include a social on the Friday night before the event (Friday 17th March) for teams arriving the night before. The event will run similarly to previous years pre-covid and will thus include two days of team racing and two nights of fantastic socials in Exeter. However, this year we are bidding to improve the standard of the event and will thus be limiting entries to 18 teams. With 4 flights of boats and only 18 teams it should allow for more high quality racing with some of the top teams in the country.
As with all most university events, accommodation to travelling sailors will be provided by members of the Exeter Sailing Club.
