Silvers Marine Scottish Series 2015 - May 22-25
J70 class announce Silvers Marine Scottish Series 2015 as Northern Area Championship!
The J/70 UK Class Association is pleased to announce the inaugural J/70 UK Northern Championships will take place as part of the Silvers Marine Scottish Series 2015, Scotland's biggest sailing regatta. Traditionally held in the stunning location of Loch Fyne, the event is hosted by the Clyde Cruising Club over the Spring Bank Holiday from Fri 22nd to Mon 25th May.
The rapid expansion of the J/70 fleet across the country means that we are expecting a substantial number of entries for what will undoubtedly be some hugely fun and competitive racing. Competitors are excited that the championships will span four days, with 12 races being undertaken. The fleet are treating the event as essential practice for British teams hoping to compete at the 2015 Worlds Championships, taking place in La Rochelle this July.

Spinlock IRC Single Event Rating (SER) TCC
For 2015 Silvers Marine Scottish Series will accept SER TCCs, and we hope that if you do not wish or need to get a full Spinlock IRC certificate, the option of racing with a SER TCC at a reduced cost will encourage your participation in this event.
The Spinlock Single Event Rating TCC is an initiative by the RORC Rating Office for 2015 for occasional IRC racers. If you are thinking of doing just one or two IRC events this year then the Spinlock IRC SER TCC may be for you. Please have a look at the the RORC Rating website to see whether it would fit your racing plans.
