Cadet Race Training and Races 2017

Published by under Cadets,Feva's,Pico's,Racing

I have put together a full program of Training and Races for Cadets aged 11+ years, in any class of boat during this season.  In addition to the Pico Racing there will be Cadet Race training (including mini races) using our new training Rib, preceded by Shore based sessions during Cadet nights on some Thursday / Fridays. I intend to go into some depth over the season, preparing our youngsters for Cadet trophy races, Interclub races and School’s Sailing. In addition, we will train a TBYC Team Racing squad (Year 9+) with our first match against Haileybury School in May. There will also be the opportunity to take the TBYC Stage 3 qualification in September. Nearer to the end of the season, we will enter the Matt Trophy and the Interclub Cadet Team Race at a neighbouring club, both of which, we have won in the past.

I have put all the dates and events together on one sheet to encourage our boys and girls to participate as fully as possible and ENJOY making progress with their sailing.

Cadet Racing starting Saturday 21st May

Published by under Cadets,Feva's,Pico's,Racing

Next Saturday 21st May is the beginning of the Summer Saturday Series. 

This is calling all Cadets to join in with the adult racing using a special Cadet Buoy.  

 

 

picoterraRS FevaLaser

The races will be approximately 50 minutes long and use a shorter course. Perfect for 11 to 15 year olds! Any class of dinghy, helm and crew or single handed.

 

Cadets: All you need to do is turn up at least one hour before the race and (optional) find me. I will help you understand the course, brief you on the number of laps and even get you on the water!

Remember there are club Picos and a RS Feva available on a first come first served basis.

 

So, let’s have a big turn out for our first BIG RACE on Saturday 21st May. This week’s race starts at 11.03 for Cadets.

 

Your guide, but I will explain it all on Saturday.

Cadet courseCadet course

  • There will be an optional briefing 1 hour before start.
  • The race will be a windward leeward course starting at the committee boat. It will be the second start with the Fast and Slow Monohulls at ‘Start time’ plus 3 minutes.
  • First check the number of laps on the blackboard at the top of the slipway.
  • Once on the water, go to the Committee boat and look for the last number on the BACK of the boat, which indicates D on the diagram.
  • On the starting signal, you will cross the line and beat to the CADET BUOY, which is a special orange buoy marked with CADET. This will be your windward mark.
  • Check whether a Red or Green flag is displayed on the Committee boat; Red means leave marks to port, Green means leave marks to starboard.
  • Run or reach down to the course. You must NOT go through the line on the downwind leg (as in the sailing instructions).
  • Beat up through the line to the Cadet buoy and continue until the displayed number of laps are completed.
  • As you cross the line the committee boat will record your time. They will not give you a signal. Your race is then finished.
  • Remember to ‘sign on’ and ‘sign off’ using the CADET sheet in the Bosun’s hut.
