Who wants to go sailing? - Virtual Regatta sailing that is . . .

We hope you have been able to download Virtual Regatta INSHORE on your smart devices and you’ve been practising your virtual sailing ahead of the HISC eRacing!

As promised, we have a plan to run some racing on Virtual Regatta Inshore.

We will host two series: a Friday Series and a Saturday Series.

The racing is open to all HISC members and the results will be available to see on the HISC website.

Both series will run for 4 weeks but If the participation is high, we will consider extending the series. 

The Friday Series Friday 24 April

The start times for both days are shown below and this will remain throughout the series.

First Start Race 1 – 18:00hrs
First Start Race 2 – 18:15hrs
First Start Race 3 – 18:30hrs

It will consist of 3 races back to back in 49ers.

The Saturday Series Saturday 25 April

First Start Race 1 – 18:00hrs
First Start Race 2 – 18:15hrs
First Start Race 3 – 18:30hrs

Before you take part you must contact Leah . . .

Prior to the Series start please also register your names and your alias names by sending an email to Leah [email protected] so that you can be entered into the results.

The game will only allow 20 persons in each race, so they will be run on a first come first serve basis.

Please make sure you practise on the game before hand as the racing will be very competitive and tight!

We look forward to seeing you one the ‘racecourse’ for some fun!
