Team Racing 2023
After a very successful Team Racing course and Elmo participation in 2022, we are intending to run another Team Racing week for Level 3's and Level 4's again this coming summer.. This is a fantastic opportunity for our trainees to try out a new type of racing (for Bray SC) 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 the week 6 of Junior Training.
In addition at the end of the summer, we hope to enter a Bray Sailing Club team into the Elmo Championships which is an annual two day team racing event and normlly takes place on the last the weekend of August in the Royal St George YC in Dun Laoghaire.
