The MYC Dinghy Race is this weekend and we are so excited!
The last time we held a dinghy event was in 1978, so this is a fabulous new chapter for the club. With 15 dinghies and 2 catamarans it will be great to see so many boats in and around Barmouth.
On Saturday there are three back-to-back handicap races starting at 11.30. All of the races start and finish in our beautiful harbour, so there should be lots to see from both the harbour and up along the Point towards the Perch (heading seaward). Pop down and have a look......
On the Sunday the race will commence at 11.30 from the harbour. As this is a long distance race you should have a good opportunity to see the boats all along the coastline heading North, returning to the finish line in the harbour from about 1.30.
Wishing all the competitors luck and we hope that everyone can get a taste for the excitement of Dinghy racing.
