Winter Racing Crew course available for booking

Rum Race 2

On Sunday 12 June our winter Racing Crew course will commence. Some of the best racing of the year happens during the RPNYC Winter Series and this course will be taking in at least two of the races.

With its combined division the winter series generally has the biggest fleet numbers of the year, making for an exciting time on the water. This course though is all about improving your boat handling skills and bringing you up to the level of “competent crew on a race boat”. We will spend two full days teaching you all the skills involved in crewing on a race boat, such as - hoisting, dropping and trimming spinnakers, improved helming, tacking more efficiently, racing tactics and strategy.

So wether you are just wanting to build on the skills learnt on your learn to sail course, or equip yourself to crew regularly on members boats, this course is for you!!! It is also another step on the pathway to owning and running your own race boat. Every year several Wellington Ocean Sports students either buy outright or join shareholdings in local boats. The Vice Commodore Paul Atkins is more than happy to talk to anyone that is considering this. He can be contacted at vc@rpnyc.org.nz .

I highly recommend racing crew to all those that have completed out learn to sail course, this course will improve your skills faster than any other course we run.
