RS 200 Open Race at Island Barn Reservoir Sailing Club
Over the last few seasons Island Barn Reservoir Sailing Club has been proud to host the South East Area Series (SEAS) Open Race Event. The events have been well attended with on average 25 boats and crews sailing.
The SEAS consists of eight meetings at a variety of venues through South Eastern England taking in reservoir, gravel pit, estuary and open sea sailing. All are welcome, meetings usual attract 20-30 boats with crews of a wide range of ability and racing experience and a SEAS meeting is an ideal way to sample racing your RS200 in a reasonably sized fleet.

RS 200 Winter Open Day Series at Island Barn Reservoir Sailing Club
This event addressed the age-old problem of one-designs wishing to support their club series but also race in larger numbers of same type on a regular basis. Given the success of the series the club has adopted a regular RS200 Series held once a month through the summer and winter sailing programmes.
