2018 racing schedule

INTRODUCTION

Mumbles Yacht Club runs an extensive racing programme the whole year round.

Racing is split into various series - Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer and Evening, with catamaran and dinghy classes.

Throughout the summer, racing is weekly (or as weekly as possible depending on whether the sea decides to show up or not). The Spring series is scheduled as often as possible when tide and light allow. During the other series', it drops down to fortnightly.

Racing is open to all classes, all competitors, all levels. If you're unsure of what to do, come along and ask someone, we're a helpful bunch and our aim is to get as many boats on the water as possible.

There are perpetual trophies for the overall winners of each series, prizes for the youth champions, and a presentation evening where everything is given out in November.

Annual Events

The Gower Challenge is a weekend dedicated to long distance racing, starting with a long distance race to Oxwich and back, and then concluding with long distance races 'around the cans'.

It's a head to head between the cat and dinghy fleets!

There also a Mumbles Yacht Club regatta, this year incorporating an Osprey Open and a 4000 Open, and a CYRC, which is a Youth regatta, and part of a regional series.

The Dart 18's come back again in September for an open event too.

Push the boat out and Bart's Bash also make an appearance at the start and end of the season.
