​The Sheffield Summer Shakedown
Pennine Sailing Club Winscar Reservoir South Yorkshire S36 4TF

Facebook event page

After what can only be described as 'a year' the University of Sheffield Sailing Club would like to welcome you for a weekend of Team Racing and Socials!

We are very excited to be running the event from the 16th-18th July. This should be well after restrictions are lifted so we are very optimistic about the chances of being able to run the event!

The event is very much dependent on the social distancing and government guidelines at the time due to Covid-19. We will be sure to update the event page with exactly how we plan to run this event, and will make every effort to ensure that any plans made going forwards will be refundable.

*EARLY BIRD ENTRY DISCOUNTED AT £250 PER TEAM before the 15TH JUNE (what a steal).

Social ticket price including food TBC

For now we are asking teams to hold off on any payment until we have a better idea of the structure of the event and how it will run. Invoices will be sent at a later date. Socials may be club socials as normal but we are also exploring options taking advantage of the summer weather e.g. BBQs!


NoR and SIs to follow.

If you are interested in the event and a touch hesitant or simply want to know more, get in touch with Peter Owen.

75th Anniversary Firefly National Championships
Looe Sailing Club Buller St East Looe Cornwall PL13 1AS

A full programme of championship races, mostly an hours length is scheduled. On Big Wednesday we hold the Sir Ralph Gore race our endurance race for a large trophy! The whole series, excluding a discard, adds to the full scorecard. The event attracts many aspiring university students and a good number of teenagers as the Firefly has huge appeal to all age groups and isn’t an expensive dinghy to buy or maintain. There are many prizes too, ones for students, under 18’s, under 21’s, the over 50’s and crew’s prizes etc.

Considerable discounts for students are available as well as help with finding and transporting boats for the event.
