Eastern Area Racing

Like other areas, ITCA East hosts open racing events each year, and in recent years we have run both a winter and summer Traveller series.  Travellers are ideal to encourage sailors to move beyond racing at just their own club level, and provides the opportunity to race in a larger fleet of Toppers than is the norm at many clubs.  

The Travellers are open events hosted for us by the clubs, so they run to the host's usual sailing programme and course, dependent on numbers and conditions.  We normally aim for 4 races on the day, with racing starting around 10.30am (depending on tides etc).  There will be a sailors' briefing beforehand and you can enter on the day for a fee of about £8-12.

Our Travellers offer sailors of all levels and experience the chance to compete against some of the best sailors in the region, including those in the various RYA junior squads.  We welcome both 5.3 and 4.2 Topper sailors (currently all boats race on the same handicap) and you will be sure of a great racing experience, and the chance to meet other Topper sailors of your age from across the region, and hopefully make new friends too!
