“I would describe the Red Funnel Easter Challenge as the first real event
of the year, it is the ideal way for new crews to come together and build a
team, an opportunity to do a whole weekend’s training for the major events
to come later in the season” Said Jim Saltonstall.
There will be a huge variety of boats competing at Easter
with hundreds of crew from all walks of life from novices
to top professional sailors.
Three days of racing consists of seven inshore round the cans
races in the Solent. Each race has reasonably short legs which
is perfect for working on teamwork and learning new skills.
2xs Will be running a training day on the Thursday and
then be based in cowes for the reggatta.
