    Team Racing at Seaview Yacht Club : 19 June 2018

    The four-way team racing at Seaview Yacht Club proved to be an intense and exciting test of tactical racing, with a strong force 4 gusting to 5 and creating challenging conditions. Each yacht club had three boats. All RVYC Mermaids went three up (in the Light Green, Dark Green & White boats). This helped to even out the responsibilities making way for effective team racing through, excellent communication, trim, tactics and sportsmanship. The

    RYA Honda Youth Powerboat Challenge update : June 2018

    Since the start of the 2018 RYA Honda Youth Powerboat season in February we have had some diverse weather.

    TST Series 7 & Cruiser Sunday B1 Race Report : 3rd June 2018

    A beautiful summer's day saw eight Squibs come out to race and the wind gods just about mustered enough puff to get them around a single lap. Slow handicappers found it difficult to make progress against the fast-ebbing tide but the Charlottes in their Feva managed to complete their course while Sam Osborne's Tera had to retire. Before the Squibs started, a lone cruiser set off into the South Easterly breeze for her zig-zag course
