Brightlingsea Sailing Club, on the Colne Estuary, near Colchester now has a Solo fleet. Numbers currently stand at 8, with 5 of us out on both Saturday and Sunday last week. Racing is close, with the first two boats separated by 14 seconds, after 1 hour and 20 minutes of racing. The club offers a full programme of racing, with races on Saturday and Sunday, and from early May a pursuit race on Thursday evening. Racing is held at all stages of the tide, although the programme does try to ensure that racing takes place on or near high tide. We would welcome any new Solo sailors who are looking for a fleet that regularly enjoys challenging racing, on waters that have already hosted the Solo Nationals, and may well do again in the future
