2000 Match Racing

Throughout winter, we hope to run some form of ‘match racing’ using our club 2000’s.
To start this off, we plan to have a ‘try a 2000’ day on Wednesday 25th October. The rough idea will be to have some general sailing in the 2000’s from 10:30 until 12:30, have a break for lunch then try some practice match races in the afternoon.
If all goes well, we’ll plan for a few Satudays during the winter season to have our match racing league, and find some form of match racing champion!
If interested, please let Kyle know (

Due to powerboat racing in the afternoon, we will be running a slightly different programme.

The 2nd race will then start as soon as possible after everybody has finished the 1st race. It will follow the usual start procedure for race 2, so a 6 minute gap between the Fast Handicap an Keelboats, then the Slow Handicap 3 minutes after the Keelboats.
