IRC Sussex Championships 2017
Sat, 10 Jun 2017, 10:00 – Sun, 11 Jun 2017, 17:00 BST
Welcome to the 2nd year of the IRC Sussex Championships. Formally known as “The Sussex Regatta”. The Sussex Regatta was started as a way to improve the standard of yacht racing in and around Sussex by promoting better competition. Through its success, it has had now been recognized as a serious yacht racing event open to all yachts and crew. Increasingly the regatta has attracted entries from further field with up to 70 entries from near & far.
The regatta is organized by the Sussex Combined Clubs (SCC) and has been running as an “inter-club collaboration” since 2005 but independently for many years before that. The event has been run by numerous yacht clubs in central Sussex including the Sussex Yacht Club in Shoreham, Brighton Marina Yacht Club, & the Sovereign Harbour Yacht Club in Eastbourne. The hosting club currently rotates between these three clubs and it is Brighton Marina Yacht Club’s honour to host the IRC Sussex Championship this year from its brand new state of the art floating yacht club.
We hope you will join us over the weekend of the 10th & 11th June ’17 for what promises to be an amazing event with competitive racing and fantastic shore side frivolities for all the family.
