2013 Team Racing
Timothy "Bam" Miller"
Team racing is the most fun and fastest growing form of the sport with more action per minute than any other sailboat racing you will experience. Whether you are a one design fleet racer or a big boat racer, we promise that you will enjoy team racing. Team racing is also a great way to improve your skills. It will improve your starting, tactics, boat handling, and your understanding of the rules.
This year we have a full and varied schedule starting with the new winter team racing in March. At the end of the season is the very exciting Islands Challenge Trophy hosted by Seawanhaka. The Islands Challenge Trophy will have an international field of sailors and a black tie social. In between we have events for everyone including novices, juniors, masters, and experts. There are opportunities for members of any experience level to crew and skipper.
There is a new emphasis on getting those new or inexperienced in team racing to join us. We are inviting everyone from juniors looking to take their sailing to the next level to experienced offshore sailors looking for something new and fun. Consider the winter team racing and the Saturday club series. Both these events are focused on learning all phases of team racing. All members are strongly encouraged to join us, a space will be made available for all that attend. For the ultimate learning experience absolutely do not miss the Team Race Clinic taught by our B-A cup team, some of the best team racers in the world.
There are also many master and grand master events (skippers 45 and older, crew 40 and older). Seawanhaka is hosting The Oyster Bay Challenge, a masters event. The Hinman Masters, and Hinman Grand Masters, are hosted by The NewYork Yacht Club in Newport.
