LLSC Icicle Series & Junior Winters

The ever popular Leigh & Lowton Winter Series kicks off with its New Year’s Day Pursuit Race on January 1st. The first start time (for Optimists) is 12.40pm with the other fleets following on, so it’s a leisurely start time after New Year’s Eve. Mulled wine is served afterwards to warm up, full galley services from 9.30am.

The Icicle Series follows the usual format with racing over 11 weeks, starting Sunday 5th January. Racing starts at 12.00pm each week, with 2 races scheduled. 4 separate fleets: Lasers, Handicap, Asymmetric, Solo/Junior. The Asymmetric fleets will be on a separate windward-leeward when conditions allow and the Lasers will be handicapped this year to even up the playing field.
