Summer Squad 2018-2019

Summer Squad 2018-2019

for members of RFBYC, all ages.

The Summer Squad is for all RFBYC sailing members who have an interest in learning match racing. Sailors who are new to match racing will be able to learn while established teams who are already able to match race will further develop their skills. 

This course aims to develop teamwork, communication and boat handling skills on the BW8 keelboats while learning to match race or advancing your team. 

Course content includes an introduction to match racing for those who are new then developing tactics and teamwork, valuable skills for any class of sailboat racing.

Teams may wish to aim towards match racing events both locally and interstate. Our own JESS Match Cup will be held from Friday 30 November to Monday 3 December and we award an open, womens and youth winner.
