Draycote Water Sailing Club are organising an end of season handicap open meeting called the Draycote Dash. This is to be an event for all types of boat over a variety of courses, for everyone to enjoy.

Event date is 20-21st November.

There will be food available on Saturday evening, and we are hoping to keep the bar open late.

The event website can be found here:

We are using a partner website called Sailracer who have created an event website which will allow pre-entry and will have any documents required such as NOR and eventually SI's and such like. You are also able to book the evening meal during the online registration process. Booking in advance will save you some money too!


Any questions feel free to contact myself or Richard LeMare (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
