Travellers Series 2019 – Rounds 3 & 4, Gosport.

DF Racing TT Series Rounds 3 & 4, Gosport MYBC, 23rd & 24th March 2019

With the first couple of rounds out of the way we can now start looking forward to the next weekend of DF racing, this time down South at Gosport MYBC. We took a trip there for last year’s DF65 Nationals and had a great time so we thought we’d go back.

The Club has two great bits of water for the skippers to enjoy and is steeped in lots of interesting history. for the non sailors amongst the travellers you’ll be pleased to know that the club is located pretty much in the centre of Gosport, near to one of the marinas and a short walk away from the ferry to Portsmouth where there is a wealth of shopping and sightseeing opportunity!

Anyhow, on to the racing, you’ll find the NoR’s for both Saturday (DF65) and Sunday (DF95) below along with links to the MYA online entry, which has been open for a week or two now.

Hope to see you by the cockle pond in a few weeks!
