Footy Free Sailing Championship @ Abington Park MYC Saturday 24th August 2019
For the first time Sailfootyuk are hosting a Free Sailing Event for Footys, the Footy free sailing rules have been in existing from the very start of the class however as far as I am aware up until now have never been used. The major changes to note, apart from the lack of radio gear! is the fixed rudder (apparently now called a skeg!) and the allowed used of just one sail in an event.
I am sure most of the regular Footy skippers have a failed experiment, or that hull that just doesn't quite fit the bill, perhaps an early build you were never quite happy with just waiting to be converted to a Free sailor so dig them out from the back of the workshop rip out the electronics and stick in place the rudder. Come along and join in the fun.
Further event details and entry information will be posted here nearer to the date.
