SailJuice Global Warm-Up 2012

Another brutal winter won't be enough to stop Britain's keenest dinghy racers...

The third edition of the SailJuice Global Warm-up brings together five of the biggest winter handicap racing events into a unified series, to find out just who is tough enough to race their way through the brutal cold of a British winter. The Draycote Dash was due to kick off the series in November, but low water levels have forced the organisers to push it back to the end of February 2012, the weekend before the Volvo RYA Dinghy Show at Alexandra Palace.

Five major handicap events constitute this winter's series. They are:

  • Grafham Grand Prix, Grafham Water Sailing Club
  • Monday 2nd January 2012
  • Bloody Mary, Queen Mary Sailing Club 
  • Saturday 7th January 2012
  • Steve Nicholson Trophy, Northampton Sailing Club 
  • Saturday 28 January 2012
  • John Merricks Tiger Trophy, Rutland Sailing Club 
  • Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th February 2012
  • Draycote Dash, Draycote Water Sailing Club
  • Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th February 2012 has teamed up with to provide an online entry system. This enables competitors to enter the events in advance.

With each event run on a different format, SailRacer has also devised a scoring system to balance up the relative value of each event, whether you're competing in one massed fleet such as at the Draycote Dash, Bloody Mary and Tiger Trophy, or in smaller divisions such as at the Grafham Grand Prix and Steve Nicholson Trophy.
