Improve Your Racing
Recommended age of 12+
**Children may apply to do either Start Racing OR Improve Your Racing but not both**
Recommended age 12 plus
Course Duration: 3 days (Thursday, Friday, Saturday)
Have you done the ‘Start Racing’ course in a previous year, gained further independent sailing experience and competed in at least one Brancaster Week (in a topper)? Then come and join us for a fun 3 days coached regatta to improve your racing skills.
You can choose from 2 fleets in which to compete – Regatta or Main. The Regatta fleet will be relatively new to racing and will be heavily coached around the course to help them grow in confidence, practice their starts and improve their rules understanding. The Main fleet will sail a longer course and will have on the water support throughout including rules advice.
Both fleets are in to be sailed in your own topper and you need to be able to sail independently out to the starting area near Cockle Mark. Please note boats will be required to sail out and back to the race course each day from the hard. Participants must also be confident in righting their own boat from a capsize in whatever conditions we are sailing in, although as in all club racing support will be provided if and when needed, but we do need students to be confident in their general boat handling, so that we can get some exciting racing.
You will get lots of racing practice, coaching and rules advice, and there will be plenty of prizes for different categories.
Please indicate whether you are Regatta or Main Fleet when you apply.
NB This is a non RYA course, there will be no RYA certificate awarded at the end of the course.
