This year sponsored by Charlies Brewery in Port Owen, the event is officially called the Charlie’s Brewery Fun Worlds 2019. Download the NOR & entry form below. Entries close on 5 April. We would however greatly appreciate getting entries in sooner. 

The Charlie’s Brewery Fun Worlds 2019 will be sailed in St Helena Bay under the auspices of Port Owen Yacht Club.

The focus of this event is to have fun in your boat so the races are short, the cruises interesting and the meals famous.
