Late Summer Championships, 27-28 Aug 2022

Heading out to the race area at Brightingsea Sailing Club Club, July 2022

This year the Late Summer Championships are being held at Brightlingsea Sailing Club, a historic sailing club on the Essex coast where sailors have competed for over a century. The club, which hosted the Fireball national championships in June, are looking forward to welcoming a large fleet of Optimist sailors over the August bank holiday weekend. 

Please access OurClubAdmin to enter the event and buy tickets for the BBQ. OurClubAdmin is also the home of the Offical Notice Board for the event, where you will find the Major Event Instructions (MEIs) and, nearer the time, the Specific Sailing Instructions (SSIs) for the event.


including space for camper vans, will be available on a site immediately next door to the club. We are expecting the campsite to open bookings for the championship weekend this Friday - when they do, we will post a link here so you can book a pitch, provisional cost is £35 per night.

Saturday BBQ

On Saturday evening, the club is putting on a barbeque for the event.  The cost is £7.50 per ticket (adult or child) and will include either a piece of grilled chicken breast or burger (with or without cheese & fried onions) and a butcher’s sausage served with a bap, green salad, chopped tomatoes & cucumber. The vegetarian option will be haloumi and vegetable skewers. All hopefully served on the beach, weather depending, if not from the galley.
