Want to compete or help run events?

Most club racing is “around the cans” – i.e. around the club marks that populate the lake.  There’s a map of where they are here.  You can get a laminated copy from the club office.

If you’re not sure how to start racing, then here’s some racing tips. You can also get help from the sailing school or ask for help from your fleet.

Don’t have a helm or crew?  Look at our Helms and crew wanted page.

If you want to help to run racing, then please ask at the club office.  David Wilkins and John Fothergill can both help you get started. There’s also a guide to running club racing
