Getting into racing

Webinar Recording

Have you got the urge to do more with your cruising yacht? Do you have a competitive streak which makes you wish you were joining the boats heading out for Sunday morning racing?  Perhaps you’re on the lookout for a one off event like the Round the Island Race to take part in as a family?

Taking those first steps into racing your boat can seem daunting and will often come with a whole host of questions about the practicalities of getting your boat safely across the start line of your first race.  Questions such as  “Do I need to get an expensive handicap rating?” (the answer is no!).
