UK K1 Lockdown Championships

It has come to that time when I need a firm indication of who will be competing in the Lockdown Championships. It is close enough to view the weather forecast and I need to know many trackers to order from Sailracer.

To explain briefly,

The championships will be held on Sunday 20th September and based at your own club. It will be open to members and non-members. Each entrant will be provided with a tracker to fix to their boats mast at deck level using a Velcro strip. You will then compete in your normal club racing. This will be a minimum of 2 races. The results will be transmitted to Simon Lovesey at Sailracer who will calculate average lap times. From this, positions for each race will be calculated and eventually an overall winner.

There will be a trophy for the winner.

We have negotiated a phenomenal deal with Simon which I hope will encourage all K1 sailors to compete. The cost of entry and the hire of a tracker will be £20 (MEMBERS £10) +p&p for the tracker. It will be open to any K1 sailor in the whole of the UK.


I was going to write a list of rules for this event. However, because different clubs are organising racing differently, I have kept them very simple.

The sailing must occur on September 20th  in a K1. The course sailed must be at least two legs of which one should be a beat. A tracking device has to be fitted. A minimum of two races must be sailed. Entry fee must be paid before the event.

​I would appreciate your confirmation of competing by Monday 7th September. Hilly will collect the entry fee later.
