Harlow Starts

The start times in the programme are based on those supplied to us at the time of going to print. Harlow have slightly less water than us, so if you launch 1 ¾ hours prior to high tide you should get to Harlow in time.

Harlow also use 5-4-1-go for starting but indicate the sequence using coloured boards.

Harlow Cup races

All boats can participate in the– including Sandhoppers.  Most of the Harlow cup races are on a Saturday.
