About this Event

Dubarry Women's Open Keelboat Championship 2020

WOKC is a popular and fun weekend regatta supporting female sailors. The racing is competitive, the frocks and flip-flops party is unmissable and the atmosphere both on and off the water is fun and friendly. All teams must compete with a fully female crew. Male support crews and party-goers are of course welcome!

The Dubarry Women's Open Keelboat Championship 2020 is taking place in the exciting new venue of the Royal Southern Yacht Club, and welcomes teams from sports boats through to production racer/cruisers. One design classes such as J80s will be considered subject to suitable class numbers - just get in touch and we will see what we can do. We hope you will join us and support and promote women in sailing.

FAQs

How do I Enter ?

We will add links shortly to take you to a page where you can enter the regatta and purchase tickets for the frocks and flipflops party.

What type of yachts can enter the regatta?

We welcome a range of boats based on IRC ratings. The IRC parameters will be included the Notice of Race. In previous years, the regatta has comprised either two or three classes, the class splits will be determined based on the entries received. This year we will also be looking to run a sportsboat class, details TBC...

What is the regatta format?

Friday evening includes the optional (but recommended) briefing at Royal Southern Yacht Club. We intend to run 3 races on Saturday and 2 races on Sunday, (subject to the weather) under the management of the Royal Southern race committee. Our famous frocks and flip-flops party is the not-to-be-missed highlight of Saturday evening!

What does entry include?

In addition to race participation throughout the regatta, entry includes a Friday evening race and weather briefing (with nibbles), a Sunday afternoon prize-giving and a goodie-bag for each entry.

Where do I park my boat?

There is limited berthing available at the Royal Southern Yacht Club - please get in touch via sailing@royal-southern.co.uk to get your boat booked in early. The Hamble River is also home to a number of other marinas, and we recommend Port Hamble or Hamble Yacht Services for vicinity to the Club.

What are accommodation options in Hamble?

The Royal Southern has a number of rooms available which you can book in advance by calling or emailing reception on 02380 450 300 or reception@royal-southern.co.uk. Tell them you are a competitor in the event to book a room.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Hamble is easily accessed by road (M27 exit 8) or regular high-speed trains from London Waterloo to Southampton (or Southampton Airport Parkway) which is just a short taxi hop away. There are several pay & display carparks in the village, or free-of-charge street parking a short walk away.
