What if you could time travel a bit in the past? This summer, join the Motor Yacht Regatta and show your seamanship skills without the use of any navigational aids. Let’s forget about phones, gadgets and simply enjoy a scenic route to a destination that will be disclosed on the day of the regatta.
The concept behind the Motor Yacht Regatta is to test the skipper’s knowledge of their boat’s performance without the use of onboard navigational equipment. This means they must estimate the speed the vessel will travel based on engine revs, whilst also taking into account wind, tide, and unknown navigational challenges such as other vessels which may require an unexpected change in course and/or speed.
With all these factors in mind, the skipper must present the estimated time of arrival (ETA ) 1 hour prior to the start of the race. There will be prizes for those closest to their ETA. We hope you will join us for a fun day out on the water.
Open to all PMYC members with Motor Yachts up to 20m (Or according to the availability of marina berths at the hosting location).
Booking: To avoid disappointment book ASAP or no later than 14th August 2019 with firstname.lastname@example.org.
