About the Race
|Start Location:||Off RBYC|
|Start Date:||Sunday 21st May 2023|
The ORCV has long been associated with double handed sailing and this race is its entrée into the wonderful world of short handed sailing.
Sailed around a Bay course this event provides a challenge to those who wish to test themselves in a short-handed sailing format, as well as providing valuable training for those who are contemplating participating in the Double-Handed division of longer races conducted by the club.
Team racing is a traditional component of the event with Clubs and competitors encouraged to compete for the Perpetual Teams Trophy. Teams can come from a club or across friendship groups or from any grouping you like and don't forget to give it a name that is fun.
The race, starting in the vicinity of the Royal Brighton Yacht Club, is approximately 22 NM in length incorporating a course specifically designed for Double Handed racing.
