The first “informal” Wednesday evening race will be 11 April (not 4 April as shown in the racing calendar).
Please come down and dust off your sailing boots, ready for the Ormunde Gurr Series, which starts on Wednesday 18 April at 1900.
For those new to racing, this is the “mid-week” stress buster that is always popular for both the racing and the social afterwards. We guarantee you will enjoy it, and its a friendly introduction to dinghy racing.
Evening meals are available after the race with the bar being open as well.
10 hours of racing in 2-man boats. £10/team. All monies to charity.
Come and try sailing – it’s FREE !
Saturday 5 May 2018 from 11:00 to 16:00 at Emberton Park Sailing Club
Go out in a dinghy with a club member and see what you think of sailing.
A great sport for everyone.

Trials were held at Haversham SC on 18 November 2017 to select 25 young sailors to represent Milton Keynes & Bucks Youth Sailing Association (MKBYSA) at the National Schools Sailing Association (NSSA) Regatta at Datchet Water in July next year.
Usually at this event the wind is blowing a gale and with it, horizontal rain, but this year, the wind was a little more scarce and the rain stayed away.
The MKBYSA team for 2018 included four EPSC sailors:
Jack Bryant (Laser Radial)
Oliver Human (Laser Radial)
Daniel Fisher (Laser Radial)
Elizabeth Richardson (Laser 4.7)
Daniel Fisher was also chosen to be MKBYSA Team Captain 2018.
Also at this event, the young sailors competed in 3 Fleet Races, each race lasting 45 minutes with Trophies for the Slow Fleet (Laser 4.7’s) and Fast Fleet (Laser Radials).
EPSC sailors were amongst those collecting the trophies.
Daniel Fisher – 1st in the Fast Fleet.
Jack Bryant – 3rd in the Fast Fleet.
Elizabeth Richardson – 1st in the Slow Fleet.
Helm Of the Year 2017
