Southwold Rally, 2024: results & Race photos

The OGA was invited to join Southwold Sailing Club for the Harbour Festival at the end of June, 2024. Read a report for the full weekend which included socialising, sailing and racing with live music and a beer festival. Here is a gallery of photos from the Race and results from all events.

The Club set a course in Walberswick Bay starting and finishing south of the Harbour entrance and turning at marks off Southwold Pier. SSC provided excellent safety boat cover as well as the Committee boat ‘Spirit’ skippered by Henry Walker, the Commodore. 17 boats arrived at the start line for 1140 to enjoy a somewhat wet race in light airs.

The results were announced with a prizegiving in the Clubhouse on Sunday afternoon after the trailer sailors had recovered their boats ready for the drive home:
