Team Racing For All 2016

 WOSC encourages all members to get involved in team racing and runs a Team/Match racing day every year. The Club  has added two more boats to its fleet of Fireflies thanks to a grant from Sport England which means we now have a full team racing flight of six boats. 
Junior Team Racing Sessions are run throughout the year culminating in the Club entering a team in the
Eric Twiname Youth and Junior Team Racing Champs at the end of October.

Closing time for entries strictly 11.15am on the day

On Sunday 17th April we will be running a two boat team racing event open to all members of the Club.

Two boat team racing is simple. The team with the boat finishing fourth (last place) loses. Each team will need four sailors, two helms two crews. We will be able to accommodate up to 8 teams and if each team sails against the other once that’s 28 races or seven races each. If all goes well we will have semi finals and a final to round it all off. Hopefully each race will be umpired and his or her decision will be final.

In order to run this competition efficiently teams must pre enter by texting or emailing Tony Thresher at the contacts above. You do not need to confirm who is sailing in your team until the day.

There is no reason to have only four members in your team as teams will be allowed to change personnel from race to race.

See the Notice of Race below and please enter as soon as possible either in person, by txt or emailing Tony Thresher using the contact details in the NOR.

All we need now are entries, a fair wind and some warm sunshine for spectators on the decking!
