NHTYA Racing

We enjoy an active race calendar and mixed race fleet. Races are organised to suit trailer sailers, using navigation marks to determine the course.


Races usually start from Rathmines Bay. Racing is held monthly, with the exception of June, July, December and January, and is a staggered scratch start. This means the slower boats start earlier than the faster boats thus reducing hassles at the start line and, in theory, all boats should finish at about the same time.  


Club race series results are calculated using a Personal Based Handicap (PBH) and a Class Based Handicap (CBH).

All classes of Trailer Sailer are welcome. Racing is the best way to improve your sailing and if you've never raced before - don't be concerned we are more than happy to teach you.
