Club Racing at LVSC
At LVSC we have a full racing programme, running between the end of March right through until October. Our main racing day is Sunday and the programme includes a mixture of Accumulator series run over several Sundays, weekend cup races and one day events. We also run several Pursuit races throughout the season.
Saturdays and Wednesdays feature racing for our less experienced sailors, including the Novice Cup.
We have developed a personal handicap system based on the renowned SailWave programme. In this way helms of varying experience and ability can compete on level terms.
We are fortunate in having RYA qualified race offials (Race Officer and Judge scheme) and we train members to Club Race Officer standard.
For the sailing anoraks among us, we also hold regular seminars/workshops on the Racing Rules
The new heated Clubhouse has allowed us to extend the season beyond the normal October watershed and host training events durinng the close season
Our junior section undergoes training before the main event on selected Sundays throughout the year. Each session is finished by a race which counts towards their own series
