Coppet Week

A largely family based event, at least 8 canoes travel to Saundersfoot every year to compete in the Coppet week trophy. The programme is fairly low key with one race per day usually 1 hour before high tide racing from the harbour. With plenty of time before and after racing, the event is a good week of lazing on the beach, spending time with family and friends, tuning and practicing with a few races thrown in. Further details can be obtained from your Wales and West Area Rep.


Loch Lomond Dinghy Week



Those of you who cant get enough of Loch Lomond SC for the Europa Cup in 2013, the club's open event is Dinghy Weekend, always held on the first weekend in September,  the Fast Handicap fleet, and ACs in the Asymmetric fleet with windward/leeward courses. The event will incorporate the Scottish Canoe Sailing Championships provided 3 or more entries per class are received. Notice of Race and Entry Form will be on the club website at
