Match Racing

Just like The America’s Cup? …… not quite ….

EDSC does it slightly differently and far more pleasantly!

We have two matching boats, usually PICOs, Toppers, Optimists but in 2017 also our new ARGOs! There can be several pairs of boats racing at the same time.

You start ankle deep in water, with a big push from your friends, sail round the nearest eelgrass buoy and back. You will either be the winner or the runner-up! Results are entered on a Round Robin chart.  Then there can be semi-finals and finals.

With the special EDSC scoring system, you can sail as many or as few races as you choose, so it’s ideal for beginners to have a go.  Meanwhile on shore there are refreshments, socialising, gossip, sandcastles, boules etc etc.  So keep your fingers crossed for fine weather!
