Race Coaching

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, including 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 - May 4th 2019

There will a half day race officer training session in the morning. 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 British Youth Sailing recognised club. In recent years we have also had visiting RYA coaches running extra coaching sessions for Toppers, Laser and RS Fevas sailors.

Rapid Races - May 4th 2019

This year we have made provision in our programme for a half day of rapid races. This is intended to provide an early-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.
