Poole Regatta: 30th April – 2nd May
The first date for the diary is Poole Regatta, and with over 18 classes expected to line up in Poole Bay, what a way to start the season. As sponsors of the rapidly growing Cape 31 class, the North Sails coaching day on the Friday before racing will be the prime time to quiz Cape 31 Class Expert Ben Saxton. Teams will have the opportunity to utilise their skill and experience in sail trim and crew work to get the most out of the first Cape 31 regatta this year.
