With sailing taking place all year at Chelmarsh, we run a full programme of racing in a variety of formats, even for those hardy enough to sail all through the winter in the appropriately named series.  You can see who some of these brave souls are on our Results page.  Click here to see the dates for all the races, or our What’s On? page for more details.  Before carrying out your duty for a race, find out more about your role on our Duties page.

Race Format

The 2017/18 Pursuit Racing Format is based on the Laser 4.7 class as a 58 min race duration. If a boat races with a PY rating start time earlier than the 58 minute race Warning Signal, (e.g. Topper) then the race will be for a 64 min duration and all timings will change accordingly.  It is the competitor's responsibility to be aware of their own start times respectively. These are displayed on the club noticeboard.
