Itchenor Sailing Club is no stranger to world class sailing. It boasts National, International and Olympic medallists among its members. There's Ian Walker, winner of the 2014-15 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race, double Olympic silver medallist, and double Mirror European Champion. He competed in the last Mirror Nationals at ISC in 2012, and won it with his daughter Zoe. Ben Saxton and Sophie Ainsworth are going to Rio this year as Olympians. George Yeoman and Tim Saxton, with others, won the RYA Team Racing championships just this month. What better club then, to host the International Mirror Class National Championships for 2016.
60 boats are expected for the August event, and they can count on top class race management, flawless organisation, super socials, and a welcoming, friendly atmosphere. The facilities on and off the water are unique, with room for all the boats right by the water on our extensive timber staging, all of it only steps from the charming 18th century clubhouse with its beautifully refurbished dining rooms and bar. Tea on the lawn has to be experienced at least once in your life.
Itchenor welcomes all comers to our events. Dates are 22nd to 25th August. Make sure you are free to come, and spread the word among your friends. Last time, 2012, was a really great event.
