SSSC taking part in RYA Spring Club Championship

The search for the ‘SSSC Champion’ has begun!

South Staffs are one of 230 clubs that have signed up for the first ‘RYA eSailing Spring Club Championship’ that will allow all competitors the chance to compete for the title of not only ‘Regional Champion’ but also ‘National Champion’ over the next few weeks.

South Staffs will be holding an additional Club Championship on Saturday 25th April at 1pm.  The top 20 competitors across both our Sunday and Tuesday e-series will be invited to take part and compete for the title of SSSC Champion.  They will then be put forward to represent SSSC at the Regional Finals. Details of the regional finals will be sent out to all eSailing club contacts & finalists on 4th May and all regional events will be completed by 24th May.  The winner from each region, will then go forward to the National Final which will be held on Saturday 30th May 2020.

Every Saturday the RYA are publishing some Top Tips and eSailing Coaching Videos on their youtube channel. The first of these went out over the Easter weekend and focused on Starting & Upwind, you can view it HERE. If you like this or any other eSailing videos please give it a ‘like’ and share it with your fellow eSailors. Also if you want to stay in touch with all the #sailfromhome content you can subscribe for free to the RYA Youtube Channel.

Top Tips for eSailors:

  • Ensure you have a good Wi-Fi connection, so you may want to ban other family members from using too much of your home Wi-Fi during races!
  • If you are playing on a phone ensure you have turned on ‘do not disturb’ to avoid any phone calls coming through during the game and kicking you out.

 

Happy eSailing!
