SailJuice Tiger Trophy 7/8

Rutland Sailing Club

1st - 2nd February 2020

We encourage all our 420 class sailors to enter in as many of the SailJuice winter series as possible.  It is a great way of including regular winter racing into your winter training schedule, giving the sailors a chance to apply what you are working on in Youth Squads and Open Training.

On the return to Rutland, the format was changed to the now traditional Three races on Saturday followed by a pursuit race on the Sunday.
A formal ‘black tie’ dinner was held at the Victoria Hall in Oakham for many years to reflect John's other significant characteristic, his ability to have fun, and tickets were always over subscribed .Commercial pressure and the economic climate forced a change of venue to the newly refurbished RSC  clubhouse. Everards Brewery continued to support the event and the dinner.
Much has been achieved at the Tiger Dinner culminating in last year’s initiative for the John Merricks Sailing Trust (JMST) to link with the RYA OnBoard scheme and to supply some 60 starter dinghies to young sailors over the next 5 years.
Half of all monies raised from entry fees and dinner tickets continue to go to the John Merricks Sailing Trust.
