Introduction to Racing - Race Training Weekend

The perfect opportunity to try yacht racing

Perhaps you've got your RYA Day Skipper or have done lots of cruising and are now looking to try yacht racing? Or maybe you are a dinghy sailor looking to make the move to yacht racing?    

There are very few opportunities for people with no previous yacht racing experience to get a chance to go racing, so at Sailing Logic we have the perfect solution. Our weekend racing course is a fantastic yacht racing taster experience!

Saturday is a training day where you will develop your teamwork with a focus on using spinnakers. 

Sunday is race day! Put the training into practice as you actually compete in local club race!

This is an ideal way to get a taste of inshore racing. You will experience the excitement of close racing under the watchful eye of our experienced race skipper and first mate.

If you have never been on a boat before, we recommend that you start with an RYA Competent Crew course to familiarise yourself with the basics of sailing and then join this fantastic racing course.
