**You may apply to do either Start Racing OR Improve Your Racing but not both**
Course Duration: 3 days
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.
You must provide your own topper. Boat checks will be conducted before the course begins. You will not be allowed to sail if your topper is not in satisfactory condition (please refer to the topper preparation guide on the course information page).
You need to be able to sail independently out to the starting area near Cockle Mark. Please note you 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 you to be confident in your 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.
