Prepare To Race

Stage 4 – Race Prep Race Prep is for kids who have completed the Better Sailing course and have bought their first boat – a Sabot dinghy for juniors or a Laser for teens. It is the transitionary level between learn to sail programs and ongoing participation in club racing.

Race Prep is supervised by our Club Coach and is a combination of games / fun based sailing and "novice" racing. For example some time might be spent sailing to a destination (e.g. a permanent mark) and some time might be spent sailing around a course.


When Race Prep sessions are held on Friday afternoons during the sailing season from Sept to April.
Times 4.00pm – 6.00pm Friday.
Prerequisites Participation in the Better Sailing course and suitability for Race Prep will be assessed by our club Coach
