Regatta Fleet was called off the night before leaving the just the main fleet. 65 had pre-entered and 51 sailors made the trip to face the elements.......  view more

Spinnaker Training

The  next leg of training is two additional days of coastal  race training at Parkstone Yacht Club in March and April.
Building upon all of the skills learnt at Spinnaker we will teach the children how to sail in waves,  tides and big winds.
This course is aimed at sailors who have completed the Pre zone Winter training,  but if you are competent at racing and simply want to sharpen your skills or blow off the winter cobwebs feel free to book via the IOCA website.

Get Involved

For the last year, IOCA South has not had an Area Rep.  So, to reduce the amount that any one person needs to do, we have split the role up into 4.  Ian Cole has kindly agreed to run the Spinnaker training again next year.  Gillian Schonrock is taking on the role of Treasurer.  We are looking for 2 more people to join us:
  • Newsletters.   Create and send out newsletters, just like this one.
  • Events.  Co-Ordinate the Southern Traveller Series and Area Champs.  You don't need to run the events themselves, just co-ordinate with the event organisers and sponsor, sort out series prizes etc.
Neither role will take up much time, or require any special skills or experience.  Click here for more details.
