Shelburne to Host Team Racing Weekend

Get set for a great weekend of Team Racing in Albacores in Shelburne.Team Racing is a fantastic way to keep sailing into the fall.  It's a great way to improve your sailing and boat handling skills, and an awesome way to build camaraderie and get your competitive spirit going in a fun filled day of dinghy racing.

The format is three boats against three boats using the Shelburne Sailing Academy owned Albacore fleet.
9 boats will be rigged, so that two teams are always racing against each other with a third team either coming ashore or "on deck" awaiting the next race.

Teams will be selected during the morning briefing.  You don't need to have a team to come to this event.  Come as you are (and dress appropriately.)

The schedule will be as follows:

08:00 - 08:45  Meet and greet, coffee muffins in the Shelburne Sailing Academy classroom
08:45 - 09:15 Briefing, strategy talk, explanation of the day's events and team selection.
09:30 - 10:00 rig boats and launch
10:15 - 16:00 team racing - rotating teams
16:00 - 17:30 de-rig, de-brief in the main clubhouse, cash bar and Boxing Rock beer.
18:00 - 20:00 grilled steak dinner (and more beer)

We'll crown the winning team during the dinner.

The cost for entry is $45, and all proceeds will go to the support of the Shelburne Sailing Academy and Learn to Sail program.
