Notice Of Race for the Oxford Open meeting

I know it still feels like mid winter but come the first weekend in April the full joys of spring will be on us - good winds and mild conditions.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Don't worry if you have an old boat with no certificate or are concerned you'll make an ar*e of yourself. Remember, even Stuart Jones at some point took the plunge and attended his first open meeting.... ...some would argue Stuart is still making an ar*e of himself!.

I guarantee you will learn heaps more by attending an event than you would sailing at your local club.

So what if you go swimming a bit !. I personally swam a good couple of km's out in Fremantle, usually chasing after the boat as it hurtled down wind without me !!

Location - see directions below

Oxford Sailing Club is located on a large reservoir to the west of Oxford

between the villages of Cumnor and Farmoor. It is easily reached from major

routes: A34, M40, A420 and the A40 and is shown on most road maps.


Leave the A34 at the A420 junction taking the Swindon route. Take the first

exit, half way up the hill and then turn right at the T-junction towards

Farmoor. At the mini-roundabout in Farmoor, turn left towards Cumnor and

take the second major turning on the right into the Public car park. There

is no need to stop at the gate house. The club house is clearly visible


the car park.


Heading South, leave the M40 at junction 9 taking the A34 south towards

Oxford. Follow directions as in the A34.

Heading north, leave the motorway at junction 8 taking the A40 towards the

Oxford ring road. Turn right following the ring road until you get to the

A34 then turn left heading south. Then see above.


Approaching from the Swindon direction, exit the A420 to the village of

Cumnor. Turn left at T-junction and follow the road through the village

(small one way system) towards Farmoor. The reservoir can be clearly seen


you come down the hill. Take the first major left hand turn into the car


If you need any help or advise please don't hesitate to contact myself.

Good sailing ,
