BUCS/BUSA Qualifiers

This coming weekend saw most of the Qualifiers for the BUCS/BUSA Team Racing Championships sailed.

The Saturday was very light, but most venues got a better wind on the Sunday. Unfortunately, the wind did not appear at all at Derwent Reservoir and the Northern Qualifier will be using the reserve weekend. Invites to the finals and playoffs are due soon and we will try and post them when they become available.

The Western Qualifier at Chew managed 133 races and a resail. There were a few capsizes in the middle of Sunday as the breeze picked up and a few teams missed some races by not being ready to get in their boats, as the race officer pushed for as many races as possible before the sun set.

The South Central Qualifier at Spinnaker achieved the most races with all teams getting 16 races, a total of 160 races sailed. For their results Click Here

The Midland Qualifiers at Grafham managed a mere 80 races (10 per team) for their results Click Here.

Scotland run their own Qualification System, This was their third event, the second looks like it may have been blown off and this weekend looks to have suffered from a lack of wind. (The only notice on their facebook page is about a three hour postponement due to lack of wind on Saturday, and they are perilously close to Derwent)

They were sailed using the new supplement to the Team Racing Call book which is not yet on the World Sailing Website so we have TEMPORARILY made it available if you Click Here. This link will cease to work once the Supplement is posted by World Sailing.

The RYA/UKTRA Team Racing Championships at Spinnaker on March 17/18 are now fully subscribed and there is a waiting list.
