Not Easy Being Green
The ‘Not Easy Being Green Regatta’ is a beginner regatta for Optimist dinghies and prams. The goal of the regatta is to give beginners an opportunity to try racing with other sailors at the same level. The first day is a clinic to teach them how to race an get around a course. This will give these new racers excellent preparation day for the regatta. The clinic will be conducted by an experienced Racing coach. The second day will be the regatta, to put the skills into practice. There will be awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for both boys and girls in Optimist and pram classes, a total of 12 awards. We have planned a fun day with T-shirts, boat stickers, lots of draw prizes, and terrific lunches at PCYC and a dinner, including dessert and juice.
The coaches will talk to the kids before the race and there will be a debrief at the end of the day. There will be as many races as time and wind will allow so that the kids get lots of experience. There will be no protests from sailors. We want this to be a positive experience for novice racers.
Parents will be able to view the racing from the local park.
Competitors are expected to bring their own boats. Some charters may be possible from PCYC
