SAILING ASSOCIATION MAR MENOR (SAMM)
Contributor / 2012-01-29 13:11:12
Fancy a Bit of Racing - As nice as it is sailing around the Mar Menor, why not take your sailing experience to the next level by racing your boat?
SAMM, a friendly bunch of mixed Nationalities but mostly British, runs a program of Race Days throughout the Spring and Autumn from the “CAR Infanta Cristina” Los Narejos, just south of St. Javier airport. They use the British RYA Portsmouth Yardstick handicap system to race a mixed fleet of dinghies, catamarans and small day boats. A cruiser class could be included given sufficient interest.
You do not need previous racing experience as many of the current competitors did not sail before they came to Spain and the entry fee is a very modest 5€ per person per race day, the money being used to run and maintain the support boat.
A “Round the Island” warm up race opens the Spring Series on Sunday 18th March with racing then every alternate Sunday till the end of June.
If you do not have your own boat come along and have a chat to us as we are always looking for new members.
Why not come and join in the fun?
