GP14 Northern Bell Series 2019 coming to RWYC

GP14 Northern Area Update – February 2019

October 2020 the end of season championship is coming to Windermere.

Burwain Open Meeting

The 2019 Northern Bell series will start on 31st March with the Burwain Sailing Club open event. The 2018 event had to be cancelled due to lack of water after the dry summer, but water levels have since recovered well.

There will be a briefing at 10:30 and the first race will start at 11:00. Races 2 and 3 will take place after lunch.

Entry is £15 and lunch can be bought for £5.

Prizes for the 2018 series, kindly donated by Tim Harper Boats will be awarded afterwards.

The Rest of 2019

We have a couple of different venues for this year, with West Kirby Sailing Club and Royal Windermere Yacht Club both returning to the series. In all there are 6 events, as in the previous year.

In addition to the Northern Bell events, we have the GP14 Youths & Masters Championships on 21st-22nd September at Bassenthwaite. Unfortunately, this event can’t be incorporated into the Northern Bell series as not all of our sailors would be eligible.

The full series is as follows, with 3 races to count & qualify











Facebook Group

I have started a new “GP14 Northern Travellers” Facebook group. Please search for this, join and contribute – it is for everyone to use, to share information about events or look for crew/helm etc.


It is planned to host at least one training day during 2019 at a Northern Area club. Details are still to be decided  – I will pass these on as soon as they are available.
