eSailing – Virtual Regatta Inshore for AYC Members
During these challenging times, AYC is certainly thinking of ways to keep our members engaged whilst following the Government guidelines on social distancing.
Virtual Regatta – eSailing
Virtual Regatta (eSailing) Inshore is aimed at everyone from expert sailors to newbies and can bring the excitement of small sailboat racing to your home. It’s easy to use and allows you to compete against thousands of others all around the world in a range of different small sailboats and world-class sailing destinations. It even has a ‘sailing school’ feature so people newer to the sport can learn how to sail from the comfort of their own home.
Our club has been given free VIP pass for the next 12 months!
