A guide to yacht racing
With the sailing season in full swing and the weather starting to improve we have been busy competing in some of the biggest yacht races like Round the Island race.
Our RORC Fastnet team has competed in two qualifying races, the RORC Myth of Malham and the RORC DeGuigand Bowl race, both very different races and excellent training for the RORC Fastnet race in August.
For some people getting into yacht racing can be daunting and although offshore yacht racing requires some experience, inshore yacht racing like Cowes Week, Hamble Winter Series, and the Warsash Spring Series are great ways to have a go at yacht racing.
If you have completed your RYA Competent Crew or RYA Day Skipper recently and are struggling to get out on the water then yacht racing is a great way to not only get out on the water but to gain valuable sailing experience.
Whether you’re new to yacht racing or have raced before our a guide to yacht racing is a great way to brush up your knowledge, or to gain an understanding of what it’s all about.
Why not attend a race training course to improve your racing skills.
