Team Racing

Team racing is a very exhilarating form of sailing. It is fast paced, exciting and action packed! There is no better way to improve your skills in tactical decision making, manoeuvring and learning to use the rules to your advantage then in team racing.

Team racing is where a team of 3 helms and 3 crews race against another team around a short course using the racing rules to get their team into a winning combination. We are renowned for our team racing experience/organisation; we have 18 team racing boats and run inter-school, inter-college and inter team-racing weekends.
