The RYA & BUSA Ladies’ Team Racing Nationals will take place at the Spinnaker Sailing Club, together with a social programme hosted by Wessex (Southampton University) Sailing Club. The full line-up includes university teams from the Universities of Bath, Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Cardiff, Durham, Glasgow, Loughborough, Nottingham, Oxford, Plymouth, Southampton and London, together with the Scorpion Class Association, Society, Society and the Ducklings, Spinnaker and West Kirby Highlanders, converging at Blashford Lake this weekend to compete for the titles. The 120 competitors will sail close to two hundred short and intense, 3-boat versus 3-boat, head to head races over the weekend.
Sailing will be run close to the shore in colour-matched fireflies and should be a good spectacle for all. The organisers are looking forward to welcoming visitors to Spinnaker Club, but, for those unable to watch the action from the shore, the event will be easy to follow online:
• Live Results, schedules and a blog will be available through the Event Website, together with all the race documentation.
• The event will also be widely covered on social media with a live and interactive Twitter run by Wessex Sailing Club: @WessexSC and Spinnaker: TeamRacing @SpinnyTR. To join the conversation, please use #Ladiestr15.
Of course, we will try to link up with it all via BUSA Sailing on Facebook.
