Race Development

Once you have some yacht racing experience, this 3-day course will really help you hone your skills, learn how to anticipate the next move, and give you a racing edge.

This course is suitable for both inshore and offshore racers.

Throughout the course you'll get to try a number of roles in order to experience the different positions and understand how they all work together. There will be a big emphasis on race focus and the mindset required to win races.

Format

Morning 1 starts with a classroom-based theory session, before heading out onto the water to put what you've just covered into practice. Then the day draws to a close with an evening debrief.

On the Sunday you will have the chance to put your new skills into practise as you take part in a local club race (subject to a suitable race running on the course dates) or complete time trials to create a sense of pressure.

By the end of the course you will feel more confident as a crew member, capable of helping to drive a winning race performance.

The syllabus will make the most of the weather at the time, but aims to cover:

  • Perfecting spinnaker hoists and drops and mark roundings
  • Upwind sail trim for speed and height after tacking / rounding
  • Establishing line bias, use of transits and starting procedures
  • Race focus and performance mindset
  • Weight distribution on the boat for speed in different wind conditions
  • Key racing rules and strategy, race preparation and top 10 race winning tips
