SSSC moves racing online

We are super excited to announce the new South Staffs eSailing Championship – starting this Sunday!

Since we can’t get out on the pond at the moment, now is the perfect opportunity to battle it out on a computer generated racecourse where you can throw caution to the virtual wind and practice those port flyers without risking an awkward conversation with your insurance company!  All you need to do is head to https://www.virtualregatta.com/en/ where you can play online through your browser or download the Virtual Regatta Inshore app to your phone or tablet. Here’s a handy guide to getting set up https://youtu.be/Q2xRHRWCuUA.

We will run two series, a Sunday series starting at 1pm and a Tuesday evening series beginning at 7pm.  We will run a series of 6 short races with 3 discards. Each race will be set up shortly after the previous one has finished and the whole series will last for around an hour. There are a maximum of 20 boats per race.  Further details of how to take part have been emailed to members

Finally, congratulations to Ed Bradburn who took victory in the hastily arranged Wednesday evening training session this week!
