Dear friends of AYC! Please find below reports and photo galleries from our Target Sailing Regatta 2012, 2013 & 2014 as well as articles about regattas AYC took part in or organized for companies and sailing clubs like the Vienna International Sailing Club. Fun, action and competitiveness always accompanied our regattas!
You never heard about target sailing before? What is TARGET SAILING?
A Target Regatta is designed for safe competitive sailing and is intended for rookies (nonprofessional sailors) to improve their sailing and navigation skills. You will be racing against the clock, so teamwork is important. Unlike other regattas the risk of collision with other boats on the start line or at the marker has been removed, because each boat will make its own time slot and sail to the crews’ ability. Webeye will be used to judge the regatta, sailing times will be adjusted manually and the results given to each crew at the end of each day.
Racing will be in accordance with the International Sailing Association Rules of Racing (2013 – 2016) simplified by AYC instructions as below: Races may consist of traditional line start and finish line, target sailing or a combination of both.
