JUST IN TIME BEFORE THE DEADLINE, THE 505 EURO CUP EVENT IN UK WILL TAKE PLACE.
6-8 September 2019.
A possible Brexit was postponed until October to ensure this 505 event will occur without issues. Will it be the last Euro Cup in Britain?
In the nick of time 505s from all over Europe will descend on Hayling Island for the UK leg of the 505 Eurocup Series.
So far this year the 505 Eurocup Series has visited Cannes, Riva del Garda and Kiel and has seen some exceptional competition; overall standings are close at the top and Hayling will be the series finale. Calling all 505 sailors anywhere this is your chance to take on and learn from some of the very best 505 sailors from all over Europe, as well as meet up with old friends or make some new ones.
In the typical 5O5 knowledge sharing manner, racing coach and competitor Russ Clark will host daily debriefs over refreshments in the club with the top sailors participating in a Q&A forum about set-up and tactical thinking from the day’s racing. If racing is postponed or abandoned there will be shore based training organised too. Additionally, there will be a class dinner at the club on Saturday night open to all sailors and families and friends.
So, if you haven’t already made plans to come to the UK’s pre-Brexit international 505 event this season what’s stopping you? If you are already coming then why not make an effort persuade your mates to come too?

The racing will be outside the harbour in Hayling Bay and at this time of year the water will be at its warmest, with a combination of sea breeze and gradient winds hopefully to give good sailing conditions, as happened last year.
