Published 11:47 on 7 Dec 2021

Next year, LCSC will be working with Hugh Styles, a former two time British Olympian, and coach of the British team in the last 4 Olympic Games, to further develop offshore racing within the club.

Our 2022 offshore race training and racing calendar has now been launched, and each element is available for booking. We'll start with the winter lecture series, covering the main elements of Offshore Racing. These will be held on club nights with the following dates and topics

8th March - Boat Handling

22nd March - Boat Speed

29th March - Manoeuvres

5th April - Race Starts

12th April - Race Preparation

For the practical on the water race training, we will be using up to 3 boats depending on demand for each training session. The format of each training session will be dictated to some extent by who has signed up, but we'll endeavour to ensure you are covering new skills on each session on the water. Each training session will have a brief before we all go out, to cover what is planned for the full training session. There will be debriefs after each day, and then a round up after the end of the training session to reinforce key learning elements. The practical training dates are as follows

1st to 3rd April

14th to 18th April

19th to 21st April

29th April to 1st May

6th to 8th May

Hot on the heels of the training, the club will then be entering up to three boats in the following races during 2022, again depending on demand

13th to 15th May - RORC - De Guingand Bowl

1st to 5th June - RORC Myth of Malham

24th to 26th June - Round the Island

7th to 10th July - RORC St Malo Race

21st to 24th July - Tattinger Regatta

29th July 5th August - Cowes Week

1st 4th October - RORC Cherbourg Race

The training program is aimed at three levels:

Those new to Offshore Racing:

This is anyone who has done some sailing already, but is new to racing, or has some race experience, and is looking for a refresher

Intermediates looking to Progress:

You may have done a race campaign before, and are now looking to progress through the roles and get a better understanding of the full boat functions in racing

Race Skipper Training:

This will focus on experienced racers looking to become skippers, and also existing race skippers looking to improve their performance and that of their crews

Please check out the calendar to book your spot by 12 December. If you have any questions, please get in touch with Ray, who will be happy to help.
