The RS Class Association are delighted to announce that Sailing Chandlery will be the title sponsor of the popular RS200 Northern Tour in 2023, meaning that RS200 sailors across the North of England can win vouchers and prizes at events.
Sailing Chandlery is run by Andrew Dowley, born out of a frustration from sailing parts not arriving in time for the weekend. He says “Sailing Chandlery is an online chandlery passionate about keeping you sailing. We offer fast dispatch, fast delivery and a 5-star customer rated service. We know that missing out on sailing time is unacceptable, that's why we ship your orders extremely quickly to get you back on the water ASAP.”
Thanks to the hard work of new RS200 Northern Rep, Ben Teague and the co-operation of our host clubs, the dates for the 6 event tour have already been published on the RS200 calendar.
The Sailing Chandlery RS200 Northern Tour starts on 25th March 2023 at Leigh and Lowton with the RS400s, then visits Yorkshire Dales in May, Staunton Harold in June and the Lord Birkett in July before a break for the Noble Marine Rooster Nationals at East Lothian. After the Nationals the tour takes in GNAC at Bassenthwaite, before concluding at Budworth.
Sally Campbell, RS Class Association Secretary said “We would like to thank Andrew for coming onboard to support the Northern Tour. We very much like to work with companies run by dinghy sailors for dinghy sailors and we know that the sailors will appreciate the prizes for the winners and most importantly spot prizes for those throughout the fleet”.
