KSSA VIRTUAL REGATTA!
OKAY… because of lockdown we can’t go sailing, but we can go virtual sailing! You probably saw the demonstration races (with top sailors) that the RYA put on a week ago. Well now it’s your turn! We can have KSSA virtual regattas!
These are being organised by Mark Thomas, with a weekly KSSA Virtual Race every Saturday at 1 pm. Starting this Saturday, so you’ll need to get a move on. There’s a video below to show you what it’s about, but you can find much more at the RYA website and YouTube channel, so get cracking!
To participate, please email Mark at Markhthomas@outlook.com and he will contact you with the details. We are limited to 20 sailors at a time so get in touch with Mark quickly if you’re interested. Depending on interest we may arrange different level races.
Keeping safe online
Now we hope and trust that everyone will enjoy eSailing with Virtual Regatta safely and responsibly, treating other competitors of all ages with respect. If a young person aged under 18 feels uncomfortable or intimidated by any message received via Virtual Regatta, they can find useful contact details, advice and information here.
As private messaging is available within Virtual Regatta we ask that all parents supervise their sailors when using the site and ensure that they are aware of keeping themselves safe on social media. The links below have advice and our safeguarding policy. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact either myself firstname.lastname@example.org or our Welfare Officer, Brian Mumford: Teammanager@kssa.co.uk
