Learn to Race

(See Calendar at bottom of page)

Our Learn to Race (LTR) course is an in house course and open only to members of Williamstown Sailing Club. It is designed to provide the key skills and confidence required for novice sailors transitioning into our Club’s afternoon racing program. Participants will learn how to rig a boat for performance, understand boat trim and balance, centreboard positions and how to round marks effectively. They learn about the racing flags and signals, how to identify line bias and different course configurations.

Each course will be followed by a Supported Green Fleet Race (SFGR) which is held at the same time as our afternoon race.
