Exeter Excalibur will run from the 7th-8th March 2020 and will additionally include a social on the Friday night before the event (Friday 6th March) for teams arriving the night before. The event will run similarly to previous years 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.
