Dinghy Programme

This section provides information for the dinghy race series and sail training, often run in conjunction with Cardigan Bay Watersports.

Dinghy Hire Arrangements


The dinghy programme 2017 has been developed.

Frostbite flier

Key to encourage new participants is the agreement with CBW for preferential hire rates for these events, with additional discount for NQYC members.

If you wish to hire a dinghy for these races please advise Crawford in advance; turning up 30 min before the briefing requesting a boat may result in disappointment.

Many thanks to those volunteers making soup, launching and manning safety boats, OOD and assistant OD with whom it would not be possible.
