Racing


We encourage everyone to have a go at yacht racing at Mylor Yacht Club, either helming your own boat, or crewing on someone else’s boat. During our sailing season from April to September, we organise regular Pursuit Racing on Sunday mornings starting at about 1100, and Class Racing on Friday evenings from May starting at about 1815. We operate four classes – Echo (Fast Handicap); Whisky (Medium Handicap); Quebec (Slow Handicap); and Hotel (Shrimpers and Gaffers).

If you have never raced before; would like to crew; or would like some extra help to improve your skills, please get in touch – one of the Racing Committee will be pleased to help.

In order to start racing you will need to submit a Race Entry Form and a YTC Handicap Form which can be accessed alongside this note. Please ensure that you send in your entry form and Handicap form a few days before you wish to start racing to allow time for processing your application.

Our experience over the last two years has demonstrated that we are well able to organise competitive racing safely whilst remaining within Government COVID Guidelines. Although restrictions have now eased, we are planning to retain a shore-based start line for Sunday morning Pursuit Races which has worked well and avoids the need for a Committee Boat. We aim to start Friday evening Class Racing using a Committee Boat.

Racing can only take place when we have a Race Management Team in place to organise the racing. The Racing Roster (also alongside) enables you to volunteer for various duties including Race Officer, Assistant Race Officer, Spotter, and volunteering your vessel as a Committee Boat. The Mylor RIB that acts as a support boat for the racing needs a RIB Cox and RIB Crew. Ashore, there are also opportunities to help with the calculation of the results after the racing. Training can be provided for each of these roles.

Whilst we take racing seriously, we also aim to make it fun. We have learned that as much pleasure can be gleaned from a tussle at the back of the fleet, as from winning. We hope to see you on the water later this year.
