Laser 'Open' Midland grand Prix series

Written by
Laser fleet racing. Laser fleet racing.

Our 'Laser Open' is on Saturday 8th June. We are expecting a good turnout from visiting clubs (races so far this season have seen in excess of 30 boats on the water)

It would be great to see a good turnout representing Burton Sailing Club at this years event.

The Laser fleet are a very friendly bunch and are very welcoming and supportive to all, particularly new sailors perhaps competing for the first time in an open event.

The Laser fleet consist of sailors of all ages and all abilities so if you sail a Laser, please come along and join in the fun. I am sure that you will have a fantastic time!

If you would like more information about this event or if you are interested in travelling to other clubs as part of our Laser fleet, please talk to either Carl Avery or Mike Pain, both have been visiting other clubs this season and would be more than happy to have you join them if interested.
