Vago fleet set for Langstone Harbour Race Weekend
For those who have not entered LHRW before, the event is hosted by three sailing clubs which share the waters of Langstone Harbour; Locks SC, Langstone SC and Tudor SC. Each of the 3 days will see a series of handicap and class races for fast & medium fleets. The event organisers are very pleased to be welcoming the Wanderer Class to the event again this year for their national championships, and also welcome the 4000, Buzz and ISO classes who have added the event to their respective circuits.
This year the race program will follow a new 6 race format with two races per day using simple sausage / triangle / trapezoid courses.
It’s not just about racing!
Each club hosts a social event over the weekend (included in the entry fee) and there is something to suit everyone’s tastes. Friday evening Tudor SC will start the weekend off with registration and a briefing before laying on a curry night with video and photo show from previous years. Locks SC follow on Saturday evening with a BBQ and Langstone SC take their turn on Sunday night with food and pub quiz. The weekend is rounded off on Monday afternoon with afternoon tea and prize giving ceremony at Tudor SC.
The event enjoys entries of 60+ boats, with a cap of 100 boats placed on the event. Entry Fees for Weekend (including 3 evening socials and tea on Monday):
- £40 Double-hander
- £30 Single–hander
