Welcome to the RYA Eric Twiname Youth and Junior Team Racing 2011

Team Racing is a great sport that encourages boat handling, rule understanding and team work and is such a great addition to any fleet racing skills.


The junior fleet will use Feva’s and the youth fleet Firefly’s for teams of three boats. (All boats are supplied)


We welcome teams from the junior and youth class associations, zones, clubs, schools and individual teams to race in the two separate events, both hosted by Oxford Sailing Club.

Guide to Team Racing

Team racing is an exciting and sociable sailing format in which a team of sailors work together to try and establish an overall winning combination for their team over their opposition. Team races are fast and furious and reward good starting, boat speed, boat handling, rules knowledge and team work skills. This guide will provide a valuable insight.

The Eric Twiname Trust

As well as supporting each of our pathway classes with an ET rib, they also support the RYA Eric Twiname Championship held at Rutland. This premier national event for Juniors (under 16 year olds) is substantially financed by the Trust. It is one of the largest sailing events in the calendar for zone/home country teams in Optimists, Cadets, Toppers, Mirrors dinghies and Bic Techno Windsurfers.
