Entries must be in by 3 June if you want to order food!

Organised by the East Coast OGA, kindly hosted by Walton & Frinton Yacht Club, you’ll be sailing in the setting of Arthur Ransome’s Secret Waters.

Racing through the challenging Walton Backwaters on Saturday, trophies will be awarded for all dinghy classes before dinner and drinks in the yacht club Saturday evening.

Sunday will see a laid back cruise and the opportunity for plenty of “mucking about on the river”.

Entries are open to both OGA and W&FYC members as well as visiting yachtsmen.

Boat entry for the weekend – OGA / W&FYC member £7.50, non-member £10

Saturday evening meal – curry & rice, naan, poppadum @ £8.50

Camping facilities are provided from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon.

Full details for the weekend and the risk assessment are now available below as downloadable documents.
