This years RNLI 24 hour Race at Paxton Lakes Sailing Club to raise funds for the RNLI is fast approaching.  We look forward to you joining us 2nd / 3rd July 2011. 

This race is held every year to raise much-needed funds for the R.N.L.I. Money is raised by sponsorship either as a total or on a per lap basis. To date we have managed to raise over £55,000, which has been used for many things including buying a new engine for an Atlantic 21 Lifeboat stationed at Great Yarmouth.The sailing club has a good sheltered sailing area with two islands and plenty of grounds for camping and caravanning. It is an ideal adventure opportunity. Camping and sailing in the dark, without the risk of getting lost, for youngsters up to the age of 70+.
 
There will be cooked meals available throughout the event along with snacks and the all important caffeinated tea and coffee. 
 
The race will be held under the ISAF rules, RYA rules and PLSC instructions. Boats are restricted to a mono-hull design with a maximum length of 17’6” and an official PY handicap or club handicap. It is a team race where teams typically vary from three or four for a single-handed dinghy up to say ten for a double-handed dinghy. Race duties, such as time keeping and safety boat, are carried out by team members.
 
This year we are once again including a Juniors Race within the main Event. This will be for teams whose members are aged 18 years and under. This is a great opportunity for youngsters to experience the fun of night sailing.
 
I do hope that you will be able to enter a team.
