Youth Sunday Racing

Dedicated racing for the Youth Classes is held on Sunday mornings throughout the sailing season with a race start of 11:00 and a pre-race briefing at 09:45 outside the training rooms.

The racing season is split into five series, with a prize giving after each series.

We hope this will help with people’s busy lives. Newer racers may wish to check the tides. If it is high water around the start time, racing will take place on West Mud, and if low water, racing will take place on Pilsey Sands.

Although it won’t be counted in the main results, parents or older siblings are welcome to sail with their child or younger sibling and are expected to help facilitate rather than all out race.

Any youth sailors sailing the Laser 4.7 can either join in with the youth racing or with the adult racing in the slow handicap. The RS200 and 29er classes race with the adults but will receive prizes for taking part in the series. 

Youth Sprints – a two-hour racing session with up to eight short sharp races. These have proven to be very popular in 29ers, Fevas and especially Teras and Optimists. The RS200 also has sprints and Youth are encouraged to join the adults for these events.
