WEYMOUTH SPEED WEEK
Weymouth Speed Week is the oldest and longest running sailing speed event on the planet, having started in 1972. The event is centered on an accurately measured 500 metre courses located in Portland Harbour. This provides the challenge for the speed sailor to pit his or her wits against the elements & the clock.
Weymouth Speed Week attracts the fastest speed sailors from around the world, including Bjorn Dunkerbeck & our own Dave (Whitey) White.
It caters for all sailing craft, experimental and production, but windsurfers have dominated in recent years with Bjorn breaking the Weymouth record last year that had stood for over 24 years!
The action takes place from the 8th-14th of October, and is held at the all new Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy.
For the early birds there will be a coaching session from Bjorn & Whitey on the Friday before (7th) covering equipment tuning & speed technique.
Red Bull are providing the opening party & there will be lots of prizes & Trophies from Neil Pryde, Tushingham, Thommen T1, Sportife, Club Vass, Naish , 604 distribution, Gaastra, & Tabou for all categories including a Novice prize.
Come along and see the action & some day tickets available all week on a 1st come 1st served basis.
