Novice Racers

Are you new to racing? We have introduced pink streamers to help identify sailors who are less confident on the racecourse. This will help everyone know that you might need a little more time or assistance in completing the course. Collect your streamer from the office. For guidance can be found here: Novice Streamers Info Sheet
