The RYA and World Sailing have partnered with the online sailing platform Virtual Regatta to offer RYA affiliated clubs free VIP access for 12 months. This enables us to set up "customised" races and setup races for up to 20 members at a time.
You can participate from a PC or laptop from the following link - https://www.virtualregatta.com/en/
This is a free website for single users, and we will be using Inshore Regattas. There is also an app available for iOS and Android.
We can also keep this to only CAYC members, by setting a code and issuing this to anyone who registers interest. Races are scheduled as follows:
- Wednesdays : Warning signal 19:15 for 19:20 start
- Sundays : Warning signal 14:30 for 14:35 start
If anyone is interested in taking part could you please drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and the CAYC code will be issued to you.
Players/racers from the club who would like to join in with our 'custom races' (once set up) must also create an account if they don't already have one. It would be good to get you to start practicing in the races and regattas that are already set up on the game. Everyone that creates an account will automatically be entered into the GBR National Championships too.
Please go to https://www.virtualregatta.com/en/inshore-game/
and then click on 'Please connect' and the 'I create my account'.
You can get more information on RYA eSailing page. You will also find a video guide there.
