The easiest way to learn how to race is to crew for one of our current members. Most will be happy to accommodate you especially on the less prestigious events, it is often the case that crew are more scarce that boats so do make yourself available any you will soon be involved.
To helm yourself, you will need the Adult Level 2 or Junior Level 3 sailing certificate. You can learn this at Yorkshire Ouse but a certificate from any training centre is valid. Start with the more casual events like Roundabout and Barrel of Beer.
If you have never raced, we would recommend crewing at least once to get to know the ropes as it can feel a little daunting and read the racing rules for the club.
Other than that, bring some lunch and be ready to have a great time.
