Racing

Whilst South Cerney Sailing Club (SCSC) promotes all forms of sailing, racing is a very important feature on the calendar.  The very healthy racing scene carries on throughout the year, wind permitting. With Handicap racing (Saturday pm), Class racing (Sunday am) and Pursuit races (Sunday pm) every weekend and Handicap racing on Wednesday evenings from March to November and the aptly named Frostbite and Chilli Dog series (Sunday am) throughout the autumn and winter months there is plenty to involve all sailors.

SCSC holds an annual open event which also hosts the final round of the Western Series for the National Solo Association.  In 2018 this is scheduled for Saturday 6th October. 

There are some very capable helms sailing Solos with a vast depth of experience in everything from boat setup to racing strategy.  This is employed during the Training events run during the year that are aimed at improving the experience on the lake.  There is also a very healthy pre- and post-race scene with tips and techniques being transfered within the fleet in a very freindly atmosphere.  Also we organise training events from outside sources including the RYA and other friends.

Most importantly we are not aware of anybody that did not enjoy the racing or receive a tremendous level of support and camaraderie from the fleet. 

If you want to come along and race then contact the Fleet Captain.  Visitors are always welcomed.
