Harken UK 2017 Musto Skiff GBR National Championship


Brightlingsea Sailing Club is delighted to welcome the Musto Skiffs to Brightlingsea from 17 to 20 August for the Harken UK 2017 Musto Skiff GBR National Championship.

With four days of high adrenalin sailing from one of the best skiff classes in the world we can expect a superb regatta.  Racing will take place on the Colne Estuary, which provides sheltered sea sailing. We can sail at any state of the tide and the Club has safe and easy launching via its own ramp into Brightlingsea Creek.

There’s plenty to keep friends and family entertained ashore, too, as the Club is open from early morning to late at night.  For the youngsters there’s a sandy beach right outside the Club, walks along the River Colne and Brightlingsea Creek, playgrounds, a seawater paddling pool, Brightlingsea’s outdoor swimming pool, and the ever-popular crabbing from Brightlingsea Hard. All are within a few minutes’ walk of the Club, so you can forget the car.

The club operates an open door policy throughout regattas and welcomes visiting sailors, their friends and families to our very special corner of Essex.
