Two more reasons to enter the Stack Winter Champs

News that our Olympic gold medallists will be at the Stack Winter Champs, and a spectacular prize package donated by The Water Shed and North Sails, will make next week's Stack Winter Champs at Murrays Bay Sailing Club, more special than ever.
Divisional winners and placegetters will be able to shake hands with Olympic Gold Medallists Jo Aleh and Polly Powrie at the prize giving of the Stack Winter Champs and check out first hand the 470 dinghy that Jo and Polly sailed to Olympic glory.
