ECA Racing Schedule 2017

The following are provisional dates for this year’s scheduled ECA Cruiser Racing.

We have our three main events:

  • Round the Isle of Wight
  • ECA Regatta Race
  • Nab Tower Race

We also have our two long-established midweek series:

  • Wednesday Evening Spring Series (7 race series, 2 discards)
  • Wednesday Evening Summer Series (7 race series, 2 discards)

We also plan (as last year) to hold TWO Wednesday evening Pursuit Races when weather and tidal conditions are suitable. Details to follow. NOTE: If we’re not able to hold a Wednesday night pursuit race(s) – then the Spring / Summer series will each revert to an 8-race series. We do however plan again this year 2 x pursuit races when tidal conditions best suit.
