The entry fee is just £95/boat. We will not be charging a late entry fee this year, but would ask you to enter now, to show us that you 'intend to sail'. No payment needs to be made until 10th August and in the event that the Championship cannot run, no payment will be due/kept. The entry fee includes the practice day, 3 days racing, and an RS600 Fleet Dinner ticket. Extra dinner tickets will be available at registration.
