Merlin Rocket Open Meeting 2021
We look forward to welcoming you to Upper Thames Sailing Club over the weekend of 11/12 September 2021. For new visitors to the club we have ample parking and space for trailers in the field opposite the railway crossing to the club. UTSC is on a wide and long reach of the upper Thames, with easy launching in front of the clubhouse, with the lawn making a perfect vantage point for spectators. The Thames Path runs through the grounds and alongside the river upstream to follow the races.
On-line booking is available here. The Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions can be downloaded below.
Camping will be available for free on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th for participants. It must be pre-booked via
firstname.lastname@example.org and no electrical hook up will be provided. Only tents are allowed on the campsite. No vehicles, campervans, caravans, or trailers are permitted on the campsite at any time. Parking for vehicles, campervans, caravans, and trailers will be available in the car park.
Catering and social:
We're pleased to say that we have secured a day time caterer for this weekend's Merlin Rocket Open meeting. Apologies that the news is at the last minute but good news that we have booked the highly recommended "Crumbs" of Flackwell Heath, serving breakfasts and lunches from 9am from the Galley, as well as a range of coffee and teas.
Please support them - all are welcome at the club to see the racing and support your sailors. The bar will of course be open from 12 each day. The planned sit-down dinner in the evening is not now taking place, but the bar and clubhouse will be open for the evening and the Merlin fleet would like to encourage and welcome all members and visitors to join them, with a takeaway order or picnic.
