Team Racing - NEW 2022
We are aiming to run a team racing course for the first time this year. This is a fantastic opportunity for our trainees to try out a totally new type of racing and get an opportunity to sail Fireflies.
The skills used in Team Racing help to emphasise skills in rules and tactics along with teams of boats/crew working together to beat their opponents. Concentration on helming and crewing skills is a must and we would encourage as many of our eligible trainees as possible to sign up for this course.
As an added bonus, for anyone headed to college within the next couple of years and thinking of joining the Sailing club there Team Racing skills are strongly in demand and opportunities within college sailing are definitely preferential to those with those skillset.
This course will be run by an Irish Sailing Team Racing coach who will join us for this week.
In addition, at the end of the week, we hope to enter a Bray Sailing Club team into the Elmo Championships which is an annual two day team racing event and takes place the weekend immediately following the course and will be held the Royal St George YC in Dun Laoghaire
