Techno sailors should be aware that the minimum sail size raced on this course is 5.8 however if you are a 5.8 sailor and want to race on the main course you need to be reasonably compitent. Less experienced 5.8 sailors should enter course two as described below.

On the junior course there will be a mix of skilly training and racing to introduce our junior fleet sailors to National racing events. These events are supported by the RYA and The Techno Steering Group who will appoint a coach to guide sailors through this new experience.

The event is open to all of our junior sailors and is intended to be a fun learning experience that will offer maximum enjoyment as well as some friendly racing.
