Haglöfs Open5 Adventure Race Series

Open 2 Day... 28/29th April

Open Adventure with the help of Tom Gibbs and Paul Noble, are bringing back this classic format of stage racing to the Lake District at the end of the month.  Entries close on 13th April, with a limited number of boats we may have to close entries early. More info here

Its a great way for Haglofs' Open5ers to sharpen their skills on a slightly longer event.  For many, 7 or 8 years ago, this format was the first Adventure Race they would have done. With most of the stages in a score format if you get tired just head back early and take adventage of the catering provided by WILF's
