Red Ribbon Regatta 2018
The Red Ribbon Regatta is a three-day regatta tailored to new racers, run on West Mud, during the best tides.  It’s a wonderful introduction to racing, a perfect preparation for Bronze Fleet at Youth Race Week. It is suitable for children who have never raced before, or are nervous and new racers.  Children who happily bat around the youth course on Sundays will most likely find they are a little over qualified for this event.
2018 will be the Regatta’s 2nd year, 2017 was its 1st and was a very successful event.
Each day consists of fun briefings, followed by some outdoor role play, such as starting sequences, mark rounding, and a few rules of the road, involving running around a made up on course on the beach.  Then off to West Mud for some fun races.
This year the regatta is part of our Dingy Mentee Programme so we will have some great help from our keen experienced racers who will either be about to or have recently taken their instructors course.
Other than that, the event is run by the parents of the kids involved, so the sooner you enter the sooner we can make a team – please let us know when you enter what role you are happy to take part in.  eg Race Officer, Assistance Race Officer, Rib Driver, Crew or Beach.
The Red Ribbon Regatta cost £25 per day, or £60 for all 3. It is fun coached racing, with lots of prizes! Children can enter for 1 day or all 3 days.
Happy Sailing
