Grade 3 Match Race Clinegatta

06/10/2022 - 06/12/2022


As the most active match racing center in the world, Oakcliff’s twelve Match 40′s are used for drills, clinics and regattas. The June Grade 3 event will start with a clinic on Friday from 0900 to 1800; competitors will be coached on starting strategies, boat handling, and the effective use of match racing rules. The day will end with a debrief and discussion with the coach. Saturday and Sunday are race days! The competition will be keen as competitors apply the skills they learned from the clinic. Following racing, we will gather at 2 South Street for a debrief and discussion with fellow competitors, the umpires and the race committee. This is where you can swap stories and debate the events of the day, practice your bar-karate, and reflect on what you learned to do (and what not to do!) Snacks and beverages will be available.

The top placing Skipper will receive an invitation to all 4 regattas of the Grand Slam Series 2022.
