Shrimper Open Championship – 1st to 3rd of September 2023

Mylor Yacht Club welcomes all Shrimper 19 sailors to the 2023 Shrimper Open Championships between 1 and 3 September. Building on the success of last season’s event, MYC will be hosting a weekend of Shrimper racing and social chit chat both on and off the water. The sailing takes place in the beautiful and scenic Carrick Roads, a great location for sailors, families and supporters, and perfect for Shrimper cruising and racing. We can’t wait to welcome you and your family.

The 3 day race series will suit Shrimper sailors of all racing abilities, with a helpful onsite team at Windsport to support the less experienced sailing teams joining in the racing for their first time. It’s not all about winning, and fun prizes will be presented throughout the weekend.
