2024 One-off Races » Commodore's Challenge - Team/Match Racing

13th July, 11:30 - 16:00

This season's Commodore's Challenge will be the Club's third team racing regatta. Each race lasts for about ten minutes but each team gets to sail in a number of races. The format of racing consists of a number of round robins, where teams are split into groups and race each team in their group. Umpires follow the races on the water in ribs and may award penalties to anyone who breaks the rules.

Our plan is to race 2 v 2 boats, using Club Stratos and Hartley dinghies, with one of each class forming a team. Each boat will have 2 crew; the helm will rotate for each race. Races will start from a Committee Vessel, use 3-2-1-Go and will involve a simple windward / leeward course (no spinnakers), lasting 10-12 minutes. The idea is simple; do not be last. The team with a boat in fourth places loses, irrespective of who won.

The exact format will depend on the number of entrants, but the aim is to start with a briefing at 11:00 and then get afloat to commence racing no later than 11:30.

The aim is to have fun and try a different form of sailing. You do not need your own boat or even decide on teams / crew. This will all be worked out in advance and the round robin will ensure that everyone sails against each other.

You may wish to bring some lunch with you as there will be a bit of time to eat between races.

The bar will be open on completion.

If you have any queries, please contact Terence O'Neill, our Vice Commodore.

HW: 17:23
