NHTYA Off The Beach (OTB) Racing

cover.jpg

We started as a group of trailer sailors camping at Lake Keepit and sailing off the beach boats at the Keepit Cool regatta - June long weekend.

Not being regular OTB racers, we needed some practise. So our small group started meeting on the Catalina cement apron next to F-Jetty- Rathmines. 

 

That was a few years ago and now from 16th January 2021 racers have grown in numbers to have a separate OTB race division within NHTYA. 

We meet once a month on a Saturday and have put a wind limit on ourselves of 15knots. If the weather is not conducive to fun, race day moves to the Sunday.  We encourage any one to come join us- drag out  an old OTB boat and have ago- lots of fun. 

 

Check out the Facebook page.

Of course being a NHTYA member you're encouraged to join in with other NHTYA

activities and have a go on a trailer sailer !
