One of the most popular and longstanding events in the Seldén SailJuice Winter Series, the Fernhurst Books Draycote Dash consists of up to four back-to-back handicap races on Saturday, starting at 11am. Sunday is the Pursuit Race.
The Seldén SailJuice Winter Series aims to appeal to as many classes as possible, with typically almost 100 different types of boat represented across the season, from fleets as diverse as the traditional Norfolk Punt and National 18 to emerging classes looking to make their mark on the UK dinghy scene.
A number of classes choose to use the Seldén SailJuice Winter Series as their class Winter Championships or for other events in their calendar during the colder months. Already for this year, fleets including the 420, D-Zero, Hadron H2 and RS Aero are using events in the Series for class purposes. If you’d like to set up a hassle-free, Covid-compliant series for your fleet, then contact Simon Lovesey: firstname.lastname@example.org
