Reid Scott incorporating the Beastie Tour

Wednesday 30th August to Friday 1st September


Reid Scott is a series of races held over three days. We plan to run two races on Wednesday, two on Thursday and three on Friday.  It is open to Cadets and Junior members: All entrants need to be at least 8 years old, and less than 25 years old on 1st September 2023. All those who wish to enter must be confident river sailors with their own boats.

We anticipate that there will be the following classes:

• Optimists

• Topper / RS Tera

• RS Feva

• ILCA / Laser (all rigs)

• 420 / General handicap

Subject to demand and the availablity of coaches, we may run coached regatta fleets in the Optimist and Topper / RS Tera fleets.

The Friday of the Reid Scott will form part of the Beastie Tour, a series of events for youth sailors at RCYC, RHYC, Dabchicks and BSC. We welcome visitors who are competing in the Beastie Tour, or others who want to come and enjoy the B.S.C. hospitality.  Races on Friday will count towards both the Reid Scott and the Beastie. 

For results to qualify towards the Beastie tour, the following  requirements apply:

  • Under 19 years old on 1st September 2023
  • Entered in one of the following boats:

◦ RS Feva

◦ RS Tera

◦ ILCA 4 / Laser 4.7

Results of boats that are ineligible will be removed from the overall results for the purposes of calculating results for the Beastie tour.

There is no need to register online for this event, you can just turn up on the day. However if you can pre-register it will be very helpful - it will allow us to buy the right number of trophies! It will also be very useful to know if you are able to help out as a volunteer: as always we need adults to help this event run smoothly; we need people to help launch and recover boats, we need a bridge team, and we need crews for the safety boats.

Entry fee for visitors: £20 per boat (regardless of whether they are doing the Beastie, or the full Reid Scott). Payable online in advance or at registration.

Overnight camping is permitted on the BSC site on Wednesday and Thursday evening.

Registration will open from 09:00 on Wednesday 30th, and there will be a briefing at 09:45 in the lower deck.

On Friday 1st registration will open for the Beastie event at 10am, and there will be a briefing at 1100 in the lower deck.

After racing on Friday evening there will be a disco in the cadet room and a 'bring your own meat' BBQ on the patio.

Formal notice of race can be found here.
