Bank Holiday race around Chichester Harbour
Hayling Island Sailing Club will host the Glyn Charles Pursuit Race on Monday 31 May 2004. The race will raise money for the John Merricks Trust and is a good opportunity to get the dinghy out of the garage and race around Chichester harbour.
Glyn Charles was a talented sailor who tragically drowned in the 1998 Sydney Hobart race. This will be the sixth time that a race around Chichester Harbour has been organised to remember and honour Glyn. The race retains a unique friendly atmosphere, with Olympic medallists competing against families, all celebrating Glyn’s life.
