Bronze and Silver Fleets – Day Two
Fastnet International Schools Regatta well underway - great vibe in spite of a slow start this morning due to light winds…
Four races complete in Bronze/Silver Fleets and five in the Gold Fleet so far. More excellent racing anticipated tomorrow to complete the series – well done all sailors!
Another great week with our summer sailors coming to an end but we still have a few places available for our next course, starting Monday 14 July.
Also, don’t forget about the Fastnet International Schools Regatta
starting 21 July…
Once again the Fastnet international Schools Regatta 2014 will be held in the superb sailing venue of Schull between 21st July – 24th July. The event is organised by us the Fastnet Marine Outdoor Education Center and Schull Community College.
The change in format in 2012 provided fleet racing of the highest caliber in the Gold Fleet, where 24 identical dinghies provided the closest possible racing with the final result only being decided on the final day.
Racing will again take place in the T.R.3.6 dinghies which were designed and built specifically for the World Team racing Championships in 2011 and a full fleet is expected.
The importance of participation in Bronze and Silver Fleets has not been forgotten by the organisers who see participation at this level as an important starting point in developing expertise, experience and having fun. Handicap racing will take place in both of these fleets and also class racing within the fleets where sufficient entries are received.
The Gold Fleet boats are provided by the organisers which will permit sailors compete at the West Cork venue without the burden of transporting boats and allow the full enjoyment and competition be the full focus of the week.
We hope to see you all there for an action packed and exciting week of racing.

Twenty two teams took part at this years Nationals which were held at Rutland Water for the first time, light airs were the name of the game for most of the event, with huge shifts and periods with no wind at all, but for the finals a nice 10 to 15 knots filled in from the North East.
Schull Sharks along with two teams from Florida in the USA and a team from Berlin, Germany made up the International entries. Schull Sharks first race was a lottery start to the event with the race taking three times as long to complete than a normal race with little or no wind for all the race, with Winchester College just winning at the finish, but this was the last race Schull lost, Schull went on to win there group and progress to the finals.
Schull were up against the USA in the Semi-Finals where they won all three races and progressed to the Final against the UK favourite Magdalen College where again they won all three races.
Schull Sharks for the third time in a row were crowned British Schools Team Racing Champions for 2014!!
