For many years MSC has sent a potty group of intrepid sailors to the Southport 24 hour race.

Southport Pier

Clubs from around the UK congregate on Southport in the middle of September and somehow organise themselves to sail round and round a small lake just inland of the sea, with helms and crew taking it in turns in order to last the full 24 hours of the race.  To say that it's usually quite windy is an understatement.

The race is a major social event for Midland Sailing Club and each year, members pile up the M6 and work themseves into dizzy spirals of joy.  This year's trip is still in being planned and we may even be able to send two teams this time.

This event is a MUST! If you've never tried it - Gofor it! When you have you'll want to return every year until your liver packs up!
