Event Details

Now that the RYA have advised its OK to get back racing, we are launching a new format Sailing Championship that refreshes the previous "quarterly points" series. The hope is that it will stimulate more competition and even higher turnout at the racing events. Its a 3-month championship so if the format goes well we plan to do 4 Championships per year.

Here are details of the new Sailing Championship, the first one will start Sunday 2/08!

  • Championships will span 3 months
  • Max 6 days of racing in a championship, aiming for 2x per month
  • 2-4 races each day (weather permitting)
  • Results will be kept & published immediately after racing
  • Discards:
    • 6x discards per Championship: this allows you to miss ~2 days of sailing & discard some bad races,
    • If 3 or more races sailed any day, there will be 1 discard applied to that day's results.
  • Lot's of prizes to win!! Prize giving each sailing day designed to stimulate competition across the fleet: (nobody can win more than 1 prize).
  • 1st Overall
  • 1st Laser Radial (if fleet of min 3)
  • 1st Enterprise (if fleet of min 3)
  • 1st Vision (if fleet of min 3)
  • 1st Lady Laser
  • 1st Master (men and women in 45-55yrs group) Laser
  • 1st Grand Master (men and women over 55yrs) Laser
  • 1st Novice (beginners, as determined by Ratty) Laser
  • So if you can't sail the whole championship, you can still win a day!
  • THE BIG PRIZES...at the end of the Championship (at the end of the 6 events)
    • 1,2,3 of each of the above classes
    The following dates are the racing days for the Summer Championship (August to October): put them in your calendar!! (5 events)
    • Sunday 2nd August
    • Saturday 22nd August
    • Saturday 5th September
    • Sunday 20th September
    • Saturday 17th October
    The lesser spotted Race Officer will be making a return to LCSC, so plenty of opportunities for all you race officers out there to dust off those skills and get back into the action. We will be seeking many volunteers to help run the races, results, safety boat and more... Would be great if you could help out!
