Following a lay-year in 2014, the Dubarry Women's Open Keelboat Championship will be making a return for 2015.

This year the event, hosted once again by Hamble River Sailing Club, is being held earlier in the season than usual, on the weekend of 30/31 May. The volunteer team which organises WOKC is delighted that Dubarry has agreed to return as title sponsor, having been involved as race or title sponsor since the event’s inception in 2008. This means there are some great prizes up for grabs yet again.

“In addition to the Dubarry performance footwear collection we now have a new and exciting range of deck shoes and nautical lifestyle clothing for Spring Summer, we are delighted to continue our support the Women’s Open Keelboat Championship," said Marketing Director, Michael Walsh. "Dubarry has been sponsoring this event since its inception and it has been a very positive partnership for both organisations. We look forward to an exciting event in May."

The organisers are looking forward to offering fun, competitive racing afloat and a great welcome ashore. The event format will focus on IRC racing and organisers hope to be able to split the fleet into two classes. For those with an available boat, but no current IRC certificate, the RORC Rating Office will issue a Limited Validity certificate. One Design Classes will also be catered for if there are sufficient entries.

For more info contact the WOKC team here or Hamble River Sailing Club here. Entry for the event remains at the same price of £90 as it was in 2013, and entries will be open from early April via Hamble River Sailing Club.

The popular Frocks & Flipflops party will take place after racing on the evening of Saturday 30 May. Lady racers, their friends and HRSC members can let down their hair and raise some cash for charities. Tickets from Hamble River Sailing Club, priced at £15 per head.
