International Paints Poole Regatta 25-27th May 2024 - for Nordic Folkboats

So far we have 3 Nordics entered for this prestigious regatta - and we are looking for more - and indeed to create this as a regular on our racing calenda. This is in line with our ambition to support the development of emerging competitive racing fleets  - so for those based in the Solent ,  Lymington , Yarmouth Hamble and Portsmouth - please take a look and see if you can make it and support Simon Flack is doing a great job promoting Folkboat racing out of Poole. If we can get to 4 we will have OD racing and results. If we get to 6 then will also earn our own start. Racing is over three days. All launching and berthing can be accommodated.
