Event Update; Between 1st and 14th July, local chandlery Nick Cox Yacht Chandler, will be offering 15% off their usual prices on all stocked Harken and English Braids products exclusively to those taking part. So, as a competitor, you can ensure you have the best equipment ahead of the regatta and over the weekend of racing.

To take advantage of this offer, please bring a copy of this email or the flyer which you will receive at registration, to Nick Cox Yacht Chandler at your point of purchase.

You can find Nick Cox Yacht Chandler at the entrance to Lymington Yacht Haven, only a short walk from both Clubs.

The 2019 Lymington Dinghy Regatta, hosted jointly by the Royal Lymington Yacht Club and the Lymington Town Sailing Club, and generously sponsored by Harken UK, will be held on 13th & 14th July 2019 in Lymington. 

This promises to be a popular event which in previous years has attracted over 100 boats. As a result there will be a cut off at 120 boats. Racing will take place in the Western Solent on 2 courses. 

The event is open to any class of sailing dinghy.  Subject to entries there will be class starts for D-one, RS800, RS700, Merlin Rocket, Seafly, Firefly, Lightning 368, and RS Aero. The Seafly National and the Lightning 368 Southern Championships will be held as part of the Regatta. Classes may be started together to minimise delays between races.

Entry fee before 5th June is just £21 for single-handers and £26 for double-handers, with launching fee of £6/boat for those without LHC launching disc. Enter now via the LTSC website HERE

Six races are scheduled with three on each day.

Registration will take place between 09:00hrs - 11:00hrs on Saturday 13th July and between 09:00hrs - 09:30hrs on Sunday 14th July at the Lymington Town Sailing Club.
