Junior Dr MacMillan Trophy Racing
Aug 20 @ 11:00 – 16:00
Junior Dr MacMillan Trophy Racing

Our junior trophy races are slightly longer courses which run for 30-40 mins off the club start line alongside the main club racing. We offer a coached fleet to help juniors new to racing make it around the course and will ‘whisky’ finish any stragglers to ensure they get the most enjoyment from racing by receiving an appropriate finish place.

Junior Points Racing Series (run as part of Cadet Coaching)
Aug 27 @ 10:00 – 16:00
Junior Points Racing Series (run as part of Cadet Coaching)

Our Junior Points Series is run as part of Cadet Coaching days and offers a coached fleet to help even the most inexperienced beginners take part & make it around the course having fun!

You can learn to start racing during our cadet coaching days when we run the junior points series in the afternoons. We use the standard trapezoid ‘square’ / inner loop/ outer loop courses they are familiar with from the junior & youth racing circuit. Races tend to be quick 20-30 min long with a combined start for all classes of boats and are scored on a handicap system. During these races, coaches will be on hand to help those new to racing make it around the course ensuring its never too early or daunting to get started! It’s so much fun with lots of banter amongst the kids.

Acorn Llangorse On Board Regatta
Sep 2 @ 09:00 – Sep 3 @ 16:00
Acorn Llangorse On Board Regatta

A great event for newcomers is the RYA Cymru Wales OnBoard  Llangorse Acorn Regatta. We encourage all our budding racers to come to the LSC Acorn regatta – it’s great fun and a fantastic opportunity to start racing in a low key fun environment on home turf. There’s a coached fleet called the OB Regatta Training fleet where Charlotte & Will will be two of the coaches there to help new racers make it around a basic ‘square’ course. This is the perfect opportunity for new sailors to make that leap from sailing to racing!  Plus there’s a separate Silver & Gold fleet for those more experienced racers.

Registration and more details at RYA CYMRU.

JUNIOR & NOVICE RACING
Morning Handicap (MHJN)

1st START: 1 LAP: DONE ​!​
ANY BOAT, ANY, ABILTY, ANY AGE
You’ll need to be rigged and changed by 10.45 ready to sign up, attend a briefing with the Race Officer and launch ready for an 11.20 am Start. 

If you don’t yet own a boat, you may hire one from the club – please see our membership pack for terms & fees.

FORMAT: Junior and Novices will start together on the first start with a ‘5,4,1, Go’ sequence. The onus will be on the more experienced racers to keep clear of you. The committee boat will display the course so make sure you bring a marker to note it down on a lake plan so you know where you’re heading. Lake plans can be found in the club.  It’s a one lap course and a safety boat will lead you round and answer any questions you have on where to go (safety duty permitting). Once finished, you can head in for lunch. If you’d like to race with the General Handicap fleet in the afternoon, then feel free to partake in one or both of the afternoon and evening races which run back to back, starting no earlier than 1.30pm.
The Morning Handicap Junior and Novice Series runs all season with Trophies presented to Juniors and Novices respectively at the annual prize giving.

The emphasis is on fun and learning with others of similar ability so please come and give it a go!
