Puffin Island Virtual Race Regatta
Date(s) - 11th April 2020
11:00 - 13:00
As the racing season is now on hold due to the guidelines for Covid 19 for a bit of fun we are going to move our racing online. Our races are going to be held on the Virtual Regatta Inshore platform. You can either play on a computer or download the app onto a mobile device. Full joining instructions and race tips are on the RYA website here where you will find information about joining and gameplay tips. As well as being fun, online racing is quite educational as it strictly follows the rules of racing with all the correct laws being applied and penalties for any offences. It’s a risk free way of learning what can and can’t be done.
We are starting with a series of races on the 11th April the Puffin Island Regatta and another series of races on the 25th April.
The races will start at 11am.
To join the races
Once you have signed up with Virtual Regatta and completed the training click on the Custom Race Button on the 11th and 25th of April.
Select ‘Join’ and enter your access code by pressing the green box at the bottom. The access code has been sent to all Members by email.
I’m looking forward to seeing you all in the race. Once a few of us have signed up and friended each other we can have a practice and check how to use the system to decide on a winner.
These races will also count towards the Commodores Cup awarded at the end of the year and the usual Club Cups will be awarded at the end of year Dinner Dance for the winners of each regatta.
