Welcome to Burton Week 2017!
After what will hopefully be a fantastic summer of sailing, come August we’re heading down to Weymouth Sailing Club for this year’s Burton Week.
Running from Saturday 19th August to Tuesday 22nd August 2017, we’ve got a fantastic long weekend of sailing planned. Weymouth is a beautiful town, and the sailing club, which sits in the thick of it, is lovely. As for the sailing, we’ll be gracing the Olympic Weymouth Bay with our 12s, so we’re set to have some excellent racing.
We’ll be starting the first briefing at 12am sharp on the Saturday so we do recommend arriving on the Friday 18th August and checking in early if convenient.
There’s also a great social program scheduled to keep us all out of mischief, and we’re looking forward to a slap up three course dinner at Weymouth Sailing Club on the Sunday.
If you haven’t yet, please do get your entry in. We’re offering an early entry discount up until July 2nd, as well as discounted entries for certain trophies. You can find all entry info on the entries page.
There’s plenty of accommodation in Weymouth, including B&Bs, hotels, and camping. We talk about a few options on the venue page.
Finally, there has been a slight change to the scoring system for some subsidiary trophies this year, so have a read of the rules over on the event page.
Here’s to another fantastic Burton Week, and we’ll see you on the water!
A huge thank you to Gul, who are generously sponsoring us for Burton Week this year.
