Weymouth Speedweek with AYRS meeting on the Wednesday evening

7 October - 13 October

Looking well ahead, once again the AYRS will hold a technical meeting on the Wednesday evening of Speedweek, this year that Wednesday evening will be 11th October 2023 and as for the past few years the venue will be the Weymouth Sailing Club.

Speedweek is not an AYRS event but the AYRS has a long association with this annual event.  Although most of the Speedweek entrants are boardsailors, there were some notable exceptions last year – for example Kyle Stonehouse came with the Vampire Project hydrofoil catamaran and on a fairly light wind day proved to be faster than any of the boardsailors, is this a sign to the future?   Paul Larsen’s SailRocket was also assembled on the hardstanding at Speedweek in 2022 but did not get afloat – perhaps it will in 2023.

Speedweek is based at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy at Portland, so on the causeway between Weymouth and Portland.  The Weymouth Sailing Club where we hold our AYRS Wednesday evening meeting is in Weymouth, by the quay at the west side of the harbour.
