Venue: Global

Format: Just when you thought you couldn’t go sailing, Royal Thames to the rescue!

RTYC, in partnership with Hugh Styles, British Sailing Team Double Handed Keelboat Olympic Coach, and Virtual Sailing, are launching virtual sailing regattas with real Olympic level coaching and interactive, apr├Ęs-sailing parties. There will be internal club Gold and Silver leagues. Those that have represented the club in international or high level national events qualify for the Gold league. If you have yet to represent the club the Silver league is a great way to advance your skills. The winners of the first round which ends on 30th April will represent the Club in the RYA national e-Championships in May. The second round will start on 1st May. Each round will last two weeks. From round 2 we will select 10 sailors to represent the RTYC against 10 of the best NYYC sailors in the inaugural RTYC / NYYC Invitational “Virtual Sailing” Cup. Winners of all e-sailing championships, in each category, will be invited, with partners, to the Prize Winners Dinner in November 2020, awarded famous Club trophies and Jeroboams of Champagne to fill them with. 
 
Hugh Styles’ coaching will focus on high level tactical and strategic awareness, which will sharpen up racing abilities for all levels of sailors. A great way to enhance your skills. After each race/coaching session, there will be a competitor’s drinks-party if you wish to remain on the zoom session.
 
To register please book the session or sessions you would like to attend on the RTYC member’s calendar, note there is a limit of 20 boats per session. The sailing office will then be in touch prior your chosen session with instructions on how to log in your chosen session.

Should you have any questions or require assistance please contact Richard in the Sailing Office click

All races / coaching sessions are at: 20:00 - 21:00 followed by an “drinks-party”  for those wishing to socialise after racing.
 
First 2 sessions FOC, thereafter the ‘ludicrously low’, special member’s rate of £5 per session.
