Yacht Racing Section

The Yachting racing section of EMBC sail on Sunday mornings on the small lake when no other events are scheduled i.e. Steerage class  and scale model regattas.

There is dedicated Fiesta racing on the first Sunday morning of each month in the warmer months.

We also race on Tuesdays and Thursdays when we can use the big lake (yachts only) between 10 am and 3pm. This was confirmed at the Water Users meeting in 2017.
The midweek racing has attracted over 10 regular skippers and there is good interest form the sailing club to which EMBC are affiliated and whose facilities we share.  Racing is of a good standard and Model Yacht Racing rules are applied, however we are a friendly group and any disputes about rights of way etc are soon agreed amicably over tea and biscuits in the clubhouse.
Racing is very keen and regularly we have all boats finishing within 1 minute

The first races in the 2018 midweek series are shown,

In 2018 we are hoping to keep a record of the sailing results and we will look to agreeing a programme shortly.

John Berry.
