Youth Race Team Series (Sailing)

Join our youth Race Team

If you’re ready to get on the start line and set course to become our next Olympian, Race Team is for you! There is much to learn, young Jedi, and each session will, step by step, improve your racing.

The Race Team joins in with our weekly club race with dates from March through to November. Dinghies typically used are Toppers and Fevas; all members with their own boat are welcome to use alternative classes such as Laser Radials.

A typical session will start at 9:30 (rigged and ready) with a briefing. At 10:00 you will head out to the start line for two races back to back. After racing there is a quick meet up at 12:30 (directly after racing) to debrief. In addition to the instructor coaching, some of our experienced club racing members will be dropping in to share their top racing tips.

Race Team sessions will be held on, or around, the first Sunday of every month, running March to November. With both Sunday races counting, this forms a 16 race ‘Youth Race Team Series’ (6 races to qualify) with prizes awarded at the annual Christmas prize giving. This series is new for 2017.



Race Team sessions on (or around) the first Sunday of every month.

Your boat should be rigged with you ready to go sailing for a 9:30 start. The session finishes with a de-briefing ending at approximately 12:45 depending on racing conditions.
