Tiger Trophy Postponed until July

Tiger Trophy Postponed

Following a detailed inspection of Rutland Sailing Club, the approach roads and the weather forecast over the coming days, and despite an heroic effort by the club to clear lying snow, the decision has been made to postpone the John Merricks Tiger Trophy.

This is the first time that the event has been affected by inclement weather conditions in it’s 17 year history.

Rutland Sailing Club has therefore rescheduled the event for the weekend of the 11th and 12th July, with the Tiger Dinner and Ball being held on Saturday 11th July.

Some 160 teams have already entered the event, and we are asking them to hold their fee over to the new date. The net proceeds of the event go to the John Merricks Sailing Trust to assist young sailors in establishing themselves in the sport of sailing.

Everyone associated with the organisation of the event has worked very hard to make the regatta happen, and are now working equally tirelessly to rearrange suppliers, volunteers, accommodation, caterers and musicians. They are most concerned to let sailors know that this decision was not made lightly.

It is hoped that the alternative summer date will be as successful as the traditional winter date.
