When getting involved with the National Redwing dinghy you probably didn’t know that you were in fact joining a collection of dedicated enthusiasts. We are from a huge range of backgrounds and ages that all love our boats and socialising with those who are also interested in them. Being so dedicated our events are well supported, we just love to race against each other and socialise with each other afterwards!
Events coming up…
Redwing National Championships 2019 – Looe Sailing Club – August 24-30th
Our 2019 National Championships will be held by Looe Sailing Club in August. It is always special to go back to the original home of the National Redwing and we look forward to some more hot competition there. More information will be available in due course on the LSC Website and the events section of our class facebook page.
Redwing Inland Championships 2019 – Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club – April 27-28th
Our 2019 Inland Championships will be held by Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club on April 27-28th. This will be our second Inlands held at BCYC. Unusually we were becalmed in 2018 limiting the event to a single race and causing much time for a fleet social. We are optimistic for more breeze in 2019!
Redwing National Championships 2018 – Centré Nautique de Plérin
An excellent event at an incredible sailing venue organised by the Le Grand Léjon association and held at the Centré Nautique de Plérin. Please read the Yachts and Yachting report for more information.
Redwing Inland Championships 2018 – Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club
This was our first Inland event for many years and unusually for BCYC the wind was lacking leaving us with just one race. We did however make up for it with Yoga, Table Tennis and beer. It was great to see everyone and we are pleased to reinstate a routing of having an Inland Championships as a second opportunity for a class event and catch up of old friends.
Redwing National Championships 2017 – North Devon Yacht Club
We were welcomed back to NDYC in 2017 with much local excitement and Redwingers of the past coming out to see. The Redwing was a very familiar sight in the NDYC racing area in the 60’s. This event also represented 50 years since the event was last held at NDYC. You can read more in the Yachts and Yachting report.
Redwing National Championships 2016 – Scillonian Sailing Club
What a picturesque venue! Despite poor weather restricting the movements of the ferry’s, we had an excellent event with the largest turnout of recent years hitting 30 boats! More information here in the Yachts and Yachting report and pictures here.
