Summer may be almost gone but the start of the colder weather does have at least one positive...

The GJW Direct Sailjuice Winter series is almost upon us!

Okay, not exactly almost upon us, but preparations are well underway.

The seven event series starts with the c on the weekend of 21 – 22 November.

Last year over 1,000 competitors took part in a whopping 91 different racing classes, with Nick Craig and his vessel, Merlin Rocket, crowned as the winner.

Competitors are welcome to compete in as many events as they like, even all seven if they really relish a challenge, with the four best scores counted.

See, winter’s not all that bad with events like this just over the horizon. Bring it on.
