SYC Virtual Regatta eSailing Series

 

 

Over the last couple of months, SYC members have been actively racing off against one another through the online sailing platform, Virtual Regatta. As we start to head back towards our normal day to day activities, we have wound down our Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday sailing series. In total, 281 races have been sailed to date by 57 different SYC members.

We are looking to continue our Thursday Twilight series through winter with more information below:

  • Mercedes-Benz Brighton Thursday Twilight eSailing Winter Series
    Similar to the Wednesday Wonders series, our weekly “Thursday Twilight” series which will be sailed well after sunset and in a non-daylight savings period, will commence on Thursday 7 May with the first warning signal no earlier than 1930hrs. There will be five races sailed with two discards. Races will have a target time of 6 minutes and will be sailed in J/70’s.
