2016 dates for your diary

2016 promises to be another busy year full of varied events and we welcome local and visiting yachtsmen to join us on and off the water.

The 15th annual Classic Regatta in June will be a celebration of classic sailing boats and its 15th consecutive year is testament to its popularity. This year the two days of racing will encompass Dovercourt Bay, Harwich Harbour and the Orwell and Stour Estuaries, with live music on the Saturday night. Interested parties should contact Jonathan Dyke.
For the racing sailors among us, both Haven Ports Yacht Club series in the spring and autumn will incorporate IRC racing boats and the exciting new Melges 24 fleet, which is now at 13 boats and growing in popularity.
On land, the annual Clarke and Carter Yacht Fair and the SYH workshop open weekend provide fantastic opportunities to find out more about the brokerage market and refit and maintenance facilities on offer at SYH.
