About the Inland series

The Inland series objective is to provide high quality racing for all fleets & classes & to include all levels of ability. There will be racing suited to the most experienced and most competative racers, racing for the club/recreational sailor as well as racing for newcomers. Especially welcome are our junior fleets & classes who may be experiencing two day racing for the first time.

At all Inland events there will be two courses.
