The British Keelboat League travels up to Scotland in a couple of weeks for the final qualifier in the league!

The British Keelboat League travels up to Scotland

The British Keelboat League travels up to Scotland in a couple of weeks for the seventh qualifier in the league. Royal Northern and Clyde Yacht club are looking forward to welcoming teams on the 7th and 8th of September 2019.

 

This is the final opportunity for teams to qualify for the national final of the British Keelboat League for 2019. Royal Northern and Clyde Yacht club are aiming to be the headline venue for keelboat racing in Scotland. They were the proud host of the 2018 Blind Match Racing World Championships and they are ready to impress teams with their world-class racing and the facilities to match.

 

With places left, do not miss your opportunity to be part of this awesome event. There is a great list of local clubs already entered, but which two teams will be heading to the final?

  • Oban Sailing Club
  • Helensburgh
  • RNCYC
  • Edinburgh University

 

Since its inception just a few years ago, the British Keelboat League, has brought sailors from all different disciplines and professional backgrounds of the sport together. From seasoned offshore racers to university students, the British Keelboat League is a truly inclusive opportunity for everyone who loves our sport.

 

Entering this event will give teams the chance to experience racing in one of the new RS21 keelboats. The weekend will comprise of a fleet of RS21’s and up to 12 teams from local clubs competing in quickfire “sprint” races, each lasting around 15 minutes. Races will be umpired, and teams will rotate between boats in the fleet throughout the weekend of racing. By Sunday afternoon every team will have competed in approximately 12 races and the top 2 teams identified for qualification into the national final. 2019 final will be hosted by Royal Thames Yacht Club later in the year.

 

This event is an excellent opportunity for sailors to get together and race. You are representing your club at an event, without the hassle of transporting your boat around the UK. The cost of entry for this qualifier is just £75 per person (£300 per team). All you need to do it enter your team and arrive at the club ready for racing on Saturday morning! For those teams wishing to get in some pre-event training, we will also be offering the chance to take the boats out for a shakedown sail on Friday the 6th of September. More details will be available closer to the event weekend.

With teams entered from across Scotland and the North of England it’s all to play for, will the home advantage pay off for the Scotts? Follow the event to find out who comes out victorious!
