Shustoke Sailors throw down the “Gauntlet” to all comers….beat us if you can!!


STOP PRESS – Shustoke Gauntlet 10 March 2019 – POSTPONED


Owing to this weekend’s forecast for Sunday, Shustoke Sailing Club have decided to postpone the event until Sunday 1 September 2019. SSC have been reviewing the forecast throughout the week and because the forecasts indicate that we can expect constant winds of c 22+kts and gusts in excess of 40kts we believe postponement is the best course of action.


Thank you to those that have entered on-line and we will be contacting you to offer either a full refund, or at your election will carry forward your entry to the new date.

All boats must be covered by valid third party insurance of at least £2,000,000 All competitors may be required to provide a valid measurement certificate and valid buoyancy endorsements.

Please note: We regret that under the terms of our lease, no animals are allowed on the site.
Unfortunately Optimist dinghies will not be able to participate in this event but Optimist sailors are welcome to enter in other classes and we have other junior boats (e.g. Toppers, RS Fevas) available to them with which to enter. The reason is that the timing of the race is too extended with Optimists included due to their handicap rating and we could not keep the races to the required timetable with such a large fleet.
