TryRace is open to all Club members who have completed TrySail or RYA level 2 (level 3 is even better). It is a practice/coaching evening run in parallel with TrySail focusing on developing the basic skills already learned to apply them to dinghy racing. The focus is on having fun while developing the skills outside the pressure of a race. Generally we use Solos or Lasers but if you have your own boat in a different class we can generally accomodate you. Each evening we focus on one particular skill gradually building up the full repertoire - for example Starting a race, Efficient tacking/gybing,  Upwind/Downwind sailing using windshifts, Rounding marks, and the Racing Rules so that you will be comfortable in the closer situations that develop on the race course.

TryRace is a nine week course every Tuesday evening starting on week 5 of TrySail and continuing though the rest of TrySail. In 2017 it starts on 6th June and finishes with a race night shared with TrySail on 1st Aug.

TryRace is free to club members, but please register on the course so we know the numbers to expect and get contact details etc.
