What We Do
For those of you who don't know, team racing is a competitve and fun sport! It consists of 10 minute-long, action-packed, fast-paced races with a huge focus on using tactics and manouvers. It is an invaluable discipline of sailing and only practised at university-level; in fact, the University of London was the first university to establish it in the 1960's with Oxford and Cambridge.
On the other hand, if you're completely new to sailing, learning with us is not only the cheapest, but will also be the most fun way to learn, we guarantee.
