VR Sports Media at the Winters

We are pleased to announce some extra excitement for our sailors at the IOCA (UK) Winter Championships to round up the year.

We will be joined by VR Sport Media who will be filming the regatta along with Saskia Clark who has recently joined the VRsport.tv media crew as their new lead presenter. Saskia will be chatting to many of the competitors on and off the water and will help us with prizegiving on Sunday.

Please note the amendment in the NOR regarding filming rights.

VR Super Store, Datchet's on site chandlery, will also generously be giving vouchers to our award winners at prize giving and we would like to thank the VR Super Store and VR Sport Media team for their support.

Regatta Fleet at the Winter Championships.

IOCA (UK) is pleased to announce that there will be a Regatta Fleet at the Winters.

This is to encourage the more junior sailors and provide an option for those that have siblings in the main fleet.

For those that were at the End of Seasons, the plan is to run it on a very similar basis with the focus on getting as much sailing in as possible. We will run a Carantec course and look to run at least 5 6 races a day and coming ashore for lunch.

There will also be RIBs on the water coaching and giving tips to those at the back of the fleet. Hopefully it will be a great experience for the sailors and look forward to seeing you at the event.

IOCA (UK) Sailing Secretary
