RS Feva Racing Programme

An introduction to the 2024 plans

 

We’re thrilled once again to be running our RS Feva Racing programmes, aimed at 11-14 years sailors!

Our objective is to get 11-14 year olds who have good sailing skill racing in the friendly and welcoming RS Feva Class events. The programme combines pre-event coaching with support while competing, and the social aspect of the programme is designed to give youngsters the best experience of one-design dinghy racing.

2024 Schedule:

Here’s the 2024 event schedule

  • RS Feva Eastern Championships – Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May – Greystones Sailing Club, Wicklow
  • RS Fest – Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th July – RS Fest at Lough Derg Yacht Club, Co Tipperary
  • MarineServices.ie Super Series – Saturday morning racing, once per month from September.
  • DMYC Frostbite Series – Sunday Afternoons, 1-5pm, from November to March – Dun Laoghaire

Getting Involved

Sailors from our 11-14 years section of the Saturday Sailing – Junior Club are welcome to take part. Sailors would need to have nearly completed their Level 4 or higher to participate. Sailors who are interested should chat with their group head instructor at the weekends.

Programme Details

Please chat with the instructors and our office team prior to booking as each students sailing standard would need to be assessed to ensure they will benefit from moving onto the next stage of their sailing development.
