Borrow a Swallow


Come and enjoy the Swallow Racing experience at Itchenor Sailing Club.

‘Svala’, Swallow 89, will be available this year on a daily basis for members or guests of Itchenor Sailing Club to join us and discover the Swallow Racing Experience.  This is an initiative sponsored by the National Swallow Class Association in conjunction with the Itchenor Swallow Class to encourage new sailors to come and enjoy the excellent class racing and après sail facilities available here at Itchenor.

All that we ask is that your team leader is a competent sailor with some racing experience and that you will take care of ‘Svala’ during your period in charge. There is a tradition that all Swallows are named after birds and the name ‘Svala’ means Swallow in Swedish. You won’t need your Swedish phrase book but we do ask for a contribution of £75 a day towards the years running costs.

On the day you will have the opportunity to race in the organized club race programme and if you are not a club member already you will be made an honorary member of the Swallow Class Association and Itchenor Sailing Club for the day.
