Social Racing

Social Racing is a new initiative we are developing with the fleet to provide additional sailing and racing opportunities without the intensity and restrictions of aggregate racing.

We’ll still be big on safety, but the sailing will be simpler and easier with a mixture of laid, box and pursuit starts and fixed mark, laid mark and passage race courses. We’ll pick the best option based on the tide and weather conditions and fleet size.

We’ll let you know over WhatsApp what the plans are each week.
