sprint regatta


Recommended Posts

What if we organised a regatta for 14 foot cats with sprint races, put up $300 for first $200 for second and $100 for third.

400 m long beat with a gate at the bottom and top to break up the fleet one lap with a work to finish.

say 5 race in one afternoon and five races the following morning.

This sort of racing is not about the fastest boat at all, it is about boat handling, starting and tactics. would be great for spectators as the racing is short and close by. We could also set a no jib rule and not bother with yardsticks as all the boats would be pretty even in theory.

Comments !! just floating this as an idea to generate interest,

We could go further and make an extra race for invited sailors to promote 14 footer but that would require a bit of thought.
