NAUTICAL CIVIL engineers will again be gathering at Grafham Water Sailing Club in Huntingdon for this year's annual Construction Industry Sailing Regatta on 16 June.
Entries are still welcomed by organiser Maunsell, which hopes to top last year's record fleet of 79 boats. Any class of sailing dinghy can be entered, the only restriction being that at least one of the crew must work in the construction industry.
Last year's regatta, despite the light wind conditions, proved a highly competitive series of races. The event was dominated by Dan Alsop and Steve Aston of the Environment Agency who won the individual competition in their Fireball dinghy, and helped the Agency fend off BAA/Amec for the team trophy. Alsop completed his sweep by winning the ICE President's Trophy for those over 45.
The three race event is co-sponsored by geotextile manufacturer GeoFabrics and recruitment consultant Anders Glazers Wills. Sailors, with or without a boat, should contact Steve Corbet at Maunsell on (0181) 663 6565 or visit the Regatta website on www.mauns
