2022 New Racers

Redoubt Sailing Club CT21 4ND Dymchurch Rd, Hythe

KSSA New Racers event is specially designed for young people without or with very limited racing experience and expertise. Please come along, even if you don’t have your own boat (see below).

COACHES & HELPERS: The staffing of the event will be by the adults of KSSA & RSC with senior KSSA sailors coaching afloat in RIBs. Parents will be especially welcome on the shoreline to help their children with launch and recovery.

FACILITIES: Redoubt SC is in a secure site and the access gates will be open 08.30-09.30hrs. Should you arrive later, please park up and use the pedestrian access gate – it’s only a short walk. When you enter, you will be asked by the warden whether you are going on the water, or you are not. Please make sure that only the sailors and those actually going afloat are counted.

The RSC toilets will be open throughout the day but there are very limited changing facilities. There will be sheltered places to change & store your clothes if you are not able to arrive ready to go afloat.

Parents may wish to bring a fold away chair.

Sorry NO dogs onsite

SAILING BOATS: We expect most of the action afloat to be in Toppers, Teras, Optimists, Topazs, Picos and Feva dinghies. You are very welcome to bring your own boat but there is a selection available to use FREE OF CHARGE on a first come first served basis. Enter now to reserve yours!
