Weta sailing in May 2015

Messagepar Pewit » Mar Déc 02, 2014 6:04 am

I will be visiting the UK in April for a wedding but then plan to travel to France to tour the countryside in May (Brittany is on the shortlist).

I'd also like to meet with other Weta owners and take part in a race/regatta - if I can charter a boat.

Are there any events dates for April/May 2015?

Regards

Hello Paul,

If you don't mind to travl a little southmost than Brittany, you can come to Cavalaire (May 8th to 10th this year).

Hi Paul,

You can also check the Weta Class France calendar for 2015 here

Please bear in mind that some of these dates can still be modified, so it would be advisable to double-check on Weta Classe France website before you firm up your travel plans. If you need to charter a boat, we can probably arrange something for you.

Cheers !

Philippe,
The Cavalaire Regatta seems quite enticing. How much is a charter boat for this event? Details on where to stay, what the racing will be like, how many boats, etc. would be great.
Thanks!

Hello Jonathan,

For a charter boat, ask directly to Laurent if he can provide one.
For staying, most of us go to nearby camping grounds, for example, "Camping de la baie" is a good place where you can rent a bungalow. It is located less than 10mn walk from the sailing club.
It's difficult to tell how many boats will be present: 2 years ago we were 9, last year 6, it varies!
Generally we have 2 days with regattas in the Cavalaire bay and one day with a raid with a destination depending on the weather forecast.

Hello,

Do come down to the Southwest on your tour of France!
There are maybe a dozen Wetas in the Greater Bordeaux area (from Ile d'Oleron to the Basque Coast).
You could spend a few days on the lakes: Hourtin, Lacanau, Sanguinet, Biscarosse...

There's an emergent Weta community at the Club de Voile de Sanguinet where I'm a member and on the committee.
You are welcome here, and we can get 2-3 boats at least into an open club regatta, and/or go on our own trips.
Good mobile homes at the Camping des Oreades, a few minutes away by boat or on bicycle.

Give us your dates and we'll see what we can do.

Regards,
Michael
