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 (sailing@wobyc.com)
