Pyefleet Racing Week


  • Pyefleet Week runs from Saturday 10th August to Saturday 17th August 2019 inclusive

The plan

  • to run at least a 3 day long weekend from Friday evening 9th August
  • a minimum of 3 teams of 2, maximum 6 teams of 2 (over that first weekend)
  • to continue our involvement during the rest of Pyefleet week for as long as we still have at least 3 teams still taking part.

Registration with Brightlingsea Sailing Club

Saturday, followed by the non-series Carole Cruickshank Pursuit Race that afternoon.


The main race series of 6 races takes place from Sunday until Saturday. There is a race series rest day on Wednesday when the non-series Big Wednesday All In Handicap Race takes place.

Racing takes place with 2 separate fast and slow handicap fleets racing each day, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon alternating each day, and our Wayfarer dinghies would probably be assigned to the slow handicap fleet.


A separate form should be filled in and returned as soon as possible by everyone wishing to take part including both members of any team.

It is best to to form a team in advance with someone you are already used to racing with in a Bahia or some other double hander. If you have not yet formed a team, we will attempt to pair you up.

If you have already formed a team, please also indicate on the form the name of your team co-member and indicate with an X which days in addition to the first weekend you or your team can take part.

As soon as we have a full picture of how many teams wants to be involved and for how long, we will notify everyone of how many days we will have enough teams to participate. 


Costs for NLSA members and guests will be similar to daily rates for normal Brightlingsea activities. There will be an additional cost of £15 per day per Wayfarer for Registration.
