The Schools competition over three days of the weekend provided the large number of competitors and their supporters with a superb demonstration of the professional and friendly atmosphere our Club hosts significant sailing events from our attractive vantage point on the Bay.
Teams racing is a unique regatta format, using two up Pacer boats, where two teams of three boats compete with each other to score the least points in a race. High levels of skill in teamwork, tactics and strategy are required to ensure minimum points in a race, as first out of six does not always gain the minimum points. Blocking, luffing and traps are common tactics deployed to support your team against the opposition. MYC members were represented amongst a number of the schools competing and acquitted themselves very well. The work put in by all our volunteers in preparing, running and quickly tidying up from such a major event was fantastic. Well done.
