This season, incorporated into the O’pen Bic Racing Programme, we have been running a Spring Race Series as part of the training. This has given the kids further insight to race procedures and real life sailing rules situations.
Over the past weeks, we have run 5 races and we could say that all of them have been quite a spectacle. From light wind conditions to some tricky gusts, it has been quite a challenge for our young sailors to get the boats going fast or to keep them up right. Our experienced sailors (Gold Fleet) have led the way with those new to the Bics (Bronze Fleet) not far behind. It has been great seeing the new sailors improving their skills, while the more experienced ones have refined their techniques.
In February 2019, when we are back on the water, we will start our Summer Race Series. Keep fingers crossed for more wind!
