Hi everyone – the class are organising for four Ultra 18’s to sail the english sail juice winter series. The winters series is from the 21st November to 7th february, there are 7 different events around the english london and midland inland reservoirs. It is fleet racing, usually with 50-70 boats on the water ranging from Merlin Rockets, RS 400’s, fireballs, 505’s, solo’s.

There is excellent coverage of the series, we are going to work with sail juice to get good coverage, so we want to put the best teams together that we can to get great publicity.

There will be two Ultra’s coming over from Ireland for the series, plus Panther, Hurricane and Odyssey, so we want a minimum of 4 boats for each event.

The events are listed below, please can you let me know via facebook or email if you/a team are interested in crewing / helming and for which events, I’ll co-ordinate interest and get back to you.

I appreciate people putting in the effort as it will require travelling, co-ordination and commitment, but we’ll be sure to make it good fun as only the 18ers can do as well….get your dry suits on order and let me know!
