    Chris Linday says there are still some spaces left for the RYA Online Umpire Course on the 10th October. The purpose of this course is to provide sailors with a background in Team Racing with an opportunity to work towards an RYA Umpire Qualification. This course is perfect for anyone who is interested in learning more about how on-the-water umpires make decisions, and especially anyone interested in team racing.

  • Varsity Match
    Saturday saw a rescheduled Varsity Match between Oxford and Cambridge sailed at Farmoor Reservoir.

    Cambridge won the Open event 8:3 and Oxford won the Women's event 4:1 in a brisk and shifty breeze which Farmoor 1 is renowned for. Social distancing was in force for the event and competitors wore masks while racing.

  • Covid Latest
    With Universities beginning to return BUSA have hosted a webnar on Covid situation. If you want to watch it this is the link:-

    The situation is not easy with government advice changing. There will also be the need for Team Racing Organisers to comply with the requirements of their University, Sports Associations and host clubs, so if you are on event organiser you are going to need to do a LOT or research and make sure you have your ducks in line.

    At least, we are advised, that there is an exemption to the maximum of 6 gathering with regard to organised sport so there is hope, but it is not going to be easy. We wish organisers the best of luck. 

    Remember the RYA Mantra Be considerate and conservative.
