Throughout the three-day weekend, attendees will have the opportunity to take part in a training session, led by Kev O’Brien, that will showcase the capabilities of the 2000 Class and give participants coaching on how to improve their racing performance before the racing begins on day two and three of the Open.

After each day there will be evening entertainment and the opportunity to kick back and relax, and recount the day’s events. 

Over the weekend WRSC’s Free camping amenities will ensure a comfortable stay with hot showers available in the clubhouse.
