Match Racing Squad - Winter 2018

Match Racing Squad 2018

for RFBYC members

The Match Racing Squad is for sailors that are capable of sailing a small keelboat in a team and would like to learn or further develop their match racing skills. 

This course aims to develop match racing skills, polish teamwork and boat handling and establish teams. Sailors will be guided by experienced macth racing coaches and will have a lot of fun. There will be further opportunities for teams to extend their training in the Advanced Match Racing Squad from August onwards and these sailors may wish to work towards event goals through the summer. 

Seven training sessions plus one day regatta and one weekend regatta. Other opportunities as they arise such as sail making and specialist topic seminars. 

Graduates may be invited to extend their training in the Advanced Match Racing Squad. RFBYC provides generous assistance to match racing teams representing the Club in events.
