On Saturday, May 4, there will be the first starts of the weekend regatta Royal Weekend Race, and on the next day, on Sunday, in the yacht club «Manor Gals» the [email protected] Race will start. The traditional Tuesday and Wednesday night series, Tuesday Warm-Up Race and Wednesday Night Race, will resume at the Water Stadium on May 7 and 8.
A pleasant new feature of this season will be a third evening series, racing on Thursdays.
