While we may not be able to take to the water, we can still do some sailing!
A number of RNIYC sailors recently competed in the Virtual Regatta Offshore Class 40 Transatlantic Race, using the Virtual Regatta Offshore app or website.
Next up, “La Transat” in the Figaro Class. Racing from Concarneau in Brittany, around a waypoint in the Canaries, and finishing in St Barts in the West Indies.
If you wish to compete, remember to edit your personal details to include Northern Ireland, and join the group RNIYC. We have requested RNIYC be added as a listed Yacht Club, so hopefully this will be added soon.
There is a separate Virtual Regatta Inshore app. A number of RNIYC sailors are racing in different series’.
We hope to run some regattas just for us here… Watch this space.
