With almost 100 boats and over 150 sailors already entered, next month’s Zhik Poole Week is set to offer six days of fantastic closely-matched racing for all dinghies and small keel boats.
Taking place at Parkstone Yacht Club on Sunday 23 – Friday 28 August, Zhik Poole Week – returning this year to the original week-long format – offers sailors a great opportunity to experience some of the best harbour and sea sailing on the south coast.
All sailors competing in the regatta will be in with a chance of winning one of the daily spot prizes – £200 worth of vouchers generously donated by headline sponsor Zhik, alongside other prizes throughout the week.
With more than 15 classes of boat already entered, including the popular Laser, Topper, Wayfarer, RS100/200/400, Flying Fifteen and Merlin Rocket, Zhik Poole Week is proving to be a regatta not to be missed.
Each class with six entries or more will have a class race, plus there will be a handicap race.
Zhik Poole Week is offering discounted entry rate until 10 August 2015, but spaces are limited, so don’t leave it too late!
All Zhik Poole Week entrants will receive free temporary family membership to Parkstone Yacht Club, meaning they will be able to take advantage of the excellent location and facilities on offer. There will be plenty to keep sailing and non-sailing members of the family entertained throughout the week, with activities and a daily social programme, including post-sailing entertainment, food and drink.
Bryan Drake, Commodore at Parkstone Yacht Club, said: “We’re all really looking forward to this year’s Zhik Poole Week, with more than 150 sailors taking part, it’s set to be a fantastic week of sailing for everyone.
