Weigh In is mandatory for those sailing on wide wings, and will only be permitted for one try per person, at registration on Thursday or Friday.

Briefing(s): There will be a race briefing at 11.00am on Friday 9th August.

Launching: Is very easy down the slipway into the river. The slipway is also a public slipway therefore must be considerate of other users when rigging boats.

Shipping: The Tyne estuary is a busy shipping channel which you will be launching into, therefore must be aware of potential ships from the right and left when launching and must not pass in front of a ship within 1 NM.

Tides: Tide times will be posted on the event notice board on each morning.
