Pittwater School Teams Regatta

Friday 25 February & Saturday 26 February 2022 

Friday Twilight and Saturday full day regatta! A fantastic schools regatta, with the main objective of getting out on the water and building our team racing regatta skills.

To make this regatta affordable and logistically possible, we have come up with the following modifications to allow the regatta to run:

Umpires:
This event is for schools run by schools and the Club, assistance is asked for help from those schools competing to provide their senior sailors to assist with umpiring the racing. Any parents who have Racing Rules knowledge and would like to get involved in this technical part of the sport are more than welcome to try their hand in umpiring.
Please keep in mind that this event, not only will the sailors be continuously learning, but so will the umpires!
For those wanting a great way to refresh their brain on the teams racing rules this Teams Racing call book published by World Sailing is a great way to refresh and learn the rules in applied scenarios WS Teams Racing Call Book 2021-2024

Boats:
We are very lucky through the generous cooperation of Pittwater schools, access to Pacers. Whilst all the boats are built to the pacer One Design Rule, there are some small variances amongst the boats such as age of boats, sails and rigging. In an ideal world we would have all teams swapping after each race and the same generations of Pacers versing one another (e.g Knox pacers v Knox pacers), however this would take up considerable amount of time and more additional resources as well as making it very difficult to for the race committee and finish boat to come up with a draw mapping all this out.
Should there be a major variance in speed between some of the boats, this may be addressed at the end of the round robin. Again, a sailors talent, smooth boat handling, strategy and tactics should help make up for any speed variance between the boats.
