Sailing Documents

The Sailing Committee have put together a full year of racing, including the very popular Pursuit Races which are mostly held on Friday evenings. The Cock of the River series on Saturdays is aimed at all classes of cruiser or keel boat and is suitable for slower boats who do one lap while faster boats do two laps. The more serious seasonal series use slightly longer courses in the Colne and Blackwater estuary. Sonata class boats sail on Wednesday evenings. Brightlingsea One Design boats have their own series which is shared with Brightlingsea Sailing Club. A new series of races for the Foxer dinghy fleet will be held this season, details will be published directly to Foxer sailors.

These Forms can completed on this website directly or by downloading them, completing the form (easy with a smart phone) and then emailing directly to Colne Yacht Club.
