We are returning to Stone Sailing Club on the River Blackwater, for the Annual East Coast Race and prizegiving. 

Stone Sailing Club is located in a sunny corner of the River Blackwater with sandy beaches and easy access to deeper water for serious sailors. 

The East Coast Race brings together traditional gaffers with more modern craft and there is also a place for traditional Bermudans.  The racing divides the fleet into speciality classes with one overall winner for the giant Winners Pennant, donated  by James Lawrence Sails. 

If the weather is fine we will try to race all the way down to Wallet Spitway and back.  There will be good food and drink ashore for crews and supporters.

The East Coast Race event provides a great curtain raiser for the OGA Summer Cruise which starts on Sunday.

Take a look a the East Coast Race gallery, 2018  and Annual Cruise & Race gallery, 2019
