GJW Direct SailFest
SailRacer are delighted that the BMF British Sailing committee have designated GJW Direct SailFest as their BMF ‘On the Water’ event for 2015. SailFest is to take place over the late May Bank Holiday weekend, 23rd to 25th May, returning to Calshot Activities Centre on the edge of the New Forest.

The spirit of GJW SailFest is to promote fun and family activities, both on and off the water. The Devoti D-Ones and Rooster 4000s already have the event on their calendar so will enjoy big asymmetric courses in the Solent. This year sees the new addition of fun racing on the Calshot side of Southampton Water. Newly proficient or lapsed sailors are encouraged to come racing in a fun environment with the opportunity to mix with like-minded racers from other local clubs (or indeed further afield). Coaches and instructors will be on hand to point sailors in the right direction so no one feels out of their depth on the race-course.

With high tides that weekend being in the afternoon, Calshot Creek will provide the ideal venue for tasters and trials of a number of watersports for beginners or those wanting to try a new hobby.     Enter now >>>.

With our partners we have invested in over 400 GPS trackers and an ongoing development programme, that has seen live buoy by buoy scoring which captured the excitement and drama of the last race at the Dragon Edinburgh Cup, where five boats could have won and the championship going right down to the wire on the last leg. New dashboards specifically for Race and Safety Management are helping event organisers. GPS Tracking is a great way to increase interest and online spectators, from £20 per week per boat.
