Club Dinghy Racing

Club Dinghy Racing - Bay & River

There is a programme of dinghy races in Lyme Bay from May until October. Races are held every Sunday morning, weather permitting, and results contribute to a monthly series. As part of each dinghy series there is a cup race, which is always the first race of the series or, if postponed, the last race of the series. The cup race is a standalone general handicap race for one of the cups (e.g. L.Kiss Tankard, One up Pot, Crew's Cup) but will also contribute towards that series.

Cadets regularly join the dinghy races, some sailing with their parents and others racing their own dinghies or the club dinghies. Volunteers to help with time-keeping & race control are always welcome!

Dinghy sailors also regularly take part in River Races with the Axe One Design fleet. The River Race Series is open to all classes of dinghy, with racing for both General Handicap and individual Class trophies (AODs, Skows, Mirrors & cadets) (see River Races).

Bay Race Series Trophies - A trophy is awarded for each series.

May Series - Porchester Cup, June Series - Westcott Trophy, July Series - Winter Cup

September Series - Jubilee Cup, October Series - October Cup, Saturday Series - Pridham Cup

The Gaverick Cup is awarded to the most successful dinghy sailor of the season overall.

Cadets compete in the open class as well as for cadet titles.

Starting signals - flags on the support boat will support the starting sequence of horns. All signals will follow the standard ISAF format.
