Sailing for Gold

The waves on the River Ouse in York city centre may be a little smaller than those in Weymouth Bay, the wind is not quite so reliable, and the courses are more restricted (a full Olympic course doesn’t really work on a river only 30 metres wide) – but that didn’t stop us celebrating the Sail for Gold Regatta on Saturday 11 June. In conjunction with Yorkshire Ouse SC, we abandoned our usual stretch of river and organised an event in the centre of the city, attracting the attention of passers-by (residents and tourists) with banners, bunting, and lots of activity on the water. A mixed fleet of eight boats raced on the stretch between Skeldergate Bridge and the Millennium Bridge, watched by all who passed by. For further details, see our report on the Yachts & Yachting website.
