2023 Course

Racing Detail

Each event consists of 4 races using course 3, the Anti-clockwise 'M' layout. Each race consists of 4 laps.

Note: Club 500 racing whilst not a contact sport does involve a little 'bumping and banging' so we highly recommend your boat has additional floation aids fitted.
