Team Relay Race Format
A knock out competition between teams of 8 sailing side by side on a short upwind / downwind course in Laser 2000 dinghies run from safety boats. Each pair from each team completing one lap and then changing over from the safety boat. That is to say there will be 2 teams on the water simultaneously. We can probable handle 4 or 6 teams in the time available. It is intended that the pairs in the teams will be based on an experienced sailor with a cadet or less experienced sailor as helm so that everyone can take part. Team selection to be arranged on the day.
