Main Information

LBC/Long Series

The Long Series is also known as the Liverpool Bay Championship. Last year we experimented with the idea of a race on Saturday, but a reserve day on the following Sunday in case there was a better weather window. Aside from the the first race (LBC 1) this idea has been dropped. So the race is scheduled for the 16th March ONLY.
Entry fee is £10 (£15 non LYC members) a race, or a series fee of £30 (£45 excluding the Isle of Man Race. Amount in brackets are for non LYC entries. 

Results in the IoM race will count to the series
