As the most active match racing center in the world, Oakcliff’s twelve Match 40′s are used for drills, clinics and regattas. There is no quicker way to increase your boat handling, knowledge of the rules and ability to work with a team than in match racing. This Grade 5 event will start with a clinic on Saturday. We will have an organizational meeting at 1100 at 2 South Street and then head out to the water, where competitors will be coached on starting strategies, boat handling, and match racing rules. The day will end with a debrief and discussion with the coach. Sunday is race day! In an Oakcliff Grade 5+, we will attempt to race Saturday during the clinic, in addition to Sunday. If all requirements are met, we will apply for a Grade 4, thus giving more ranking points to our skippers. Our volunteer umpires will be watching 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 a critical element of the weekend, as it is where you can swap stories, practice your bar-karate, and reflect on what you learned to do (and what not to do!) Snacks and beverages may be available.
