The UKWA has the pleasure to invite any competent 5.8 sailors to join us for this event. This is not normal UKWA policy but Weymouth offers a reasonably safe environment for competent sailors therefore this is your opportunity to come and race at a round of the Stena Line British championships and includes the RYA youth & masters 2013. Racing for the 5.8 fleet will not be for RYA National Titles as these have been awarded at the National Junior Championships in July.
There will be two distinct separate fleets however they will race together.

About The Academy
WPNSA officially opened on 1st April 2000, with residence taken up in the converted ex-naval offices, whilst the plans for the new Academy were taking shape.
The clubhouse was opened officially in June 2005 and includes 30 pontoons, new slipways and much expanded room for boat storage and car parking.
The academy has excellent shower, toilet and changing facilities. In addition there is a cafe style restaurant with free wi-fi including use of two computers. A viewing deck overlooks the harbour.
There is no grass for rigging and although large carpet mats have been installed these soon get full so a rigging mat is always a good idea.
The slipways at Weymouth are generally extreamly slippy, so extra care should always be taken especially at low water.
