The entry fee is due to increase at the end of May, so please remember to enter by then if you intend to join us for this year's Nationals.

If anyone is looking for an experienced helm or crew for part or all of the week then send an email to squibs16@wsc.org.uk and we can put you in contact with suitable Squibbers.

14th February 2016

We're half way there !

There are 35 visiting teams signed up. It looks like North Wales will be devoid of Squib action towards the end of June.

I hope that the Royal Vic are keeping their powder dry as they usually field a sizeable armada for Weymouth events.

29th January 2016

Visitor entries are coming in strongly, with only 45 visitor places left.

In 2009 we managed to squeeze a few more later entrants in, however this year that won't be possible.

If you intend to join us this year please do it early to avoid disappointment !

30th November 2015

There is abundant accommodation in Weymouth, particularly within 10 minutes walk of the Sailing Club and the Squib berths. This is on the quieter side of the harbour where there are loads of holiday homes for rent and a lot of B+Bs too. These are too numerous to list and we suggest Google as your best starting point.

For a proper Weymouth experience the other side of bridge, or the "Dark Side" as it's known, should keep you entertained until breakfast time !

28th November 2015

The Notice of Race is now published.

The online entry form opens on Tuesday 1st December.
