There is an active racing scene at the club, with a number of racing series throughout the year for all levels of experience.
We are now racing again but there are limitations on the activities and facilities, which are set out here: Policy 018 - Sailing post COVID-19.
In the Spring we run an Endurance Series. Races take place on Sundays at 11.30, 13.30 and 15:15
From April we also run a Wednesday Evening pursuit race starting at 7.30 The first three races will start at 7pm. On Wednesdays, there is also a more informal sailing at 15:30 for those that would like to develop their skills or start racing.
The Main season starts late April. The First race of the day is at 11.30 and is a pursuit series. After lunch at 13.30 we have the main handicap race of the season (Folkes Series) where all boats start together. At 15.15 the final race of the day is a Mass Start. This changes in June to a second
In the summer (June/July) we change the format slightly. In the mornings we hold Jybaz or Go Sailing sessions for novicies followed by racing in the afternoon.
In August/September we revert to a three race format.
The later part of the season sees an Autumn Leaves Series with starts at 11.30, 13.30 and 15.15
On some Sundays and weekends, one off open regattas are held with 3 races on each day. The Trophy day regatta is a bit different, with 5 races in one day – more chance to practice starting!
