Start Racing Series
The start racing series is a series of nine 30 minute races, one race on each Saturday Club day. All ages are welcome, there is a separate start for Oppies. The series is aimed at those with little or no racing experience. We encourage anyone that attends Saturday Club to take part, except the more advanced sailors who have become competetive racers. There is on the water coaching by our Racing Coaches. Races start at 12:45.
RYA Start Racing Courses
Race Officer Training - March 24th 2018
There will race officer training session, two half day sessions. Being an RO at the lake is not difficult, if you can operate a stop watch and read sail numbers you can be RO. There are always people around who will advise on setting the course. You are only responsible for starting and finishing the race, you are not there as a judge racers on the course. If you race you should be prepared to volunteer as a Race Officer. Please Contact Jeff Smith if you would like to attend.
Junior Race Training
Under the guidance of the RYA we have structured our Junior Race Training for young sailors and we are proud to be one of the selected RYA Champion Clubs. In recent years we have also had visiting RYA coaches running extra coaching sessions for Toppers, Laser and RS Fevas sailors.
Rapid Races - March 24th 2018
This year we have made provision in our programme for one day of rapid races. This is intended to provide a pre-season warm-up for both those with previous experience and those who have just completed their RYA Start Racing, or indeed anyone who wnats to have a bit of fun. Races will be at most two short laps and we will cram as many in as possible. Hopefully we will also have some on the water coaching.
