Point to Point Regatta

The Point to Point Regatta combines the excitement of yacht race with the fun element of deciphering clues that determine the race course.  Your yacht will have a minimum of seven people on board.The regatta is fun, safe and challenging. Your group is divided into teams, then we conduct a safety briefing followed by crew role allocation and team practice.

Then the racing begins, with crew deciphering clues contained in a series of envelopes that determine where the marks are that the yahcts ahve to race around.  The Point to Point Regatta will help develop cohesiveness as the group learns the importance of team work and communication. They will have to think and act fast under race conditions. Our qualified skippers encourage everyone's participation and provide positive feedback.
