Team Racing 2021

A new club initiative for 2021 is to run monthly informal and instructive team racing sessions. The aim is to introduce interested dinghy sailors to team racing, bring on new talent and for the more experienced team racers to share their knowledge and re-fresh their skills. Everyone will participate together in mixed ability teams in a squad format.

Schedule for 2021:
Saturday mornings
  • 10th April
  • 8th May
  • 12th June
  • 10th July
  • 7th August
Sign up for one or more sessions.
This is informal racing with one or two flights of boats. Boats are provided (there may be a small fee to cover club boat hire). We’ll be using borrowed Scows and possibly Feva’s.
Matched teams will be formed from the squad of sailors on the day - expect to switch in and out on the water, sail with different people from different classes and to observe racing in a support-RIB when not racing.
Typical format for the day:
  • 10am (TBC) Meet at club to rig boats (in kit, ready to sail).
  • Briefing before launching, given by an experienced team racer.
  • Practice of techniques on route to race area.
  • Racing in Oxey or Pylewell sheltered, less tidal water.
  • 12:30 (approx.) Return to club and de-rig boats.
  • De-brief over lunch and a drink in the club bar or balcony
Sailors must be a member of either RLymYC or LTSC to participate.

Please tell us about yourself and your previous team-racing experience so we can balance teams out for each session and so we all get the best racing and learning experience on the water. We would also be delighted to have support from those not-wishing to sail themselves but who are knowledgeable team-racing umpires or coaches who would like to help the squad progress.
Initially, spaces are limited to 18 and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis, but we will endeavour to expand this should we get enough demand.
