  • Keith's Update
    Keith from KSail posted the following update on Facebook this Friday May 1st

    Well who'd have thought there would be an update like this... 

    Good Luck to everyone who is taking part in lots of Team Racing which is happening this weekend and over the coming weeks.

    1. The Virtual Wilson Trophy kicked off this afternoon with lots of activities and opportunities to get involved throughout the weekend. Check out the Wilson Trophy or West Kirby SC pages to get involved.

    2. The British Schools Dinghy Racing Association eSailing Team Champs start on Monday with 32 Teams competing over two divisions. Supported by KSail. More details at http://events.ksail.co.uk/2020/BSDRAeSailing/

    3. The Inter-club eSailing Team Champs which is organised by the Island Sailing Club also starts today. 40 Teams from around the world are entered. Four Leagues of 10 are starting racing later. More details on https://sailranks.com/v/regattas/1087.

    4. The Team Racing League was introduced on the BUSA Pages earlier in the week - this is running on discord - the links currently do not seem to be allowing more entries.

    5.The Scottish Virtual Sailing Club have been running Team Racing - more details on their page.

    I know there are many Universities and Clubs who are also running team races - let us know what is happening on Facebook

    Huge thanks to all those who are organising and making Team Racing things happen throughout the country. Clearly the start of May was a good target for us all to try and get things working...

  • Covid 19 Update
    We hope you are all keeping safe and are not too frustrated by the lack of action on the water.

    British Schools Dinghy Racing Association are hoping that their finals will be able to go ahead at the end of June but, as with everything, that depends on how things develop.They are starting a virtual team racing series for their members, assuming that schools go back, but they are probably teaching virtually anyway. Racing will be run during the Summer term with each entry in each division being scheduled to compete in one match with another team per week. Matches will consist of five races which will be contested by 2 Boat Teams. Results will be submitted and published weekly on kSail. Entries are required to be made by using the online entry form by 2359 on Wednesday 29th April.

    BUSA have held a virtual AGM and the new committees have been announced on their Facebook pages. They are also organising some virtual racing, details also on their Facebook page. Island Sailing Club and Scotland also have virtual racing.

    University of Birmingham's event 'The Old Joe' is back with a new date that will hopefully be missed by Covid-19! August 22-23rd is the date and South Staffs SC the venue. They would love to see as many of you there as possible and the entry form can be found if you Click Here.

    Meanwhile, stay safe and keep clear - it now has now been defined as 2 metre gap!
