Southern Area Racing
For 2017 we are holding 8 events as detailed in our Area Calendar above. The series is scored using the RYA scoring system with 1 plus half the events completed counting for the series (rounded down to the nearest whole number). Full details of the scoring system can be found here.
The Traveller series typically attracts between 20 and 40 sailors at each event with standards varying from squad members to those just starting club racing. Smaller and less experienced sailors can use the 4.2 sail in these events – the emphasis is on enjoyment (though competition for the top places will will be hard fought!).
Traveller events are frequently preceded by an Open Training event, which gives an excellent opportunity to get to know the waters and meet some of the competitors in advance. Results for the Traveller series will be posted on the area pages as soon as possible after the event. In addition to the Traveller series, there is also a smaller Chichester Harbour Trophy which is awarded for the results of the 2 Traveller events held at Chichester Harbour sailing clubs - Chichester & Bosham.
Notices of Race and Sailing Instructions will be available from the club websites at least 1 week before the events take place (many will be earlier).
