Tuesday Twilight Sailing Series

5, 12 & 19 December
6, 13, 20 & 27 February
6, 13 March.

This season we will celebrate the 14th year of the RSYS Ladies Tuesday Twilight. The 12 race series has three divisions: Ladies non spinnaker, Ladies spinnaker (sailed in Elliott 7 and Ynglings) and an Open division. The Ladies divisions require a female on the helm.

For the non-spinnaker boats it is a 'Pursuit' start with the smaller boats starting just after 5.15pm and the bigger boats closer to 6pm. The spinnaker division starts at 5.45pm. Boats are usually back at RSYS between 7 - 7.30pm depending on wind conditions. 

There are many different ways to join in the racing. RSYS skippers on non-spinnaker boats take on crew, RSYS female Members can charter an Elliott 7 free of charge for the series, you can join an Elliott 7 crew with an instructor (charges apply) or you can join an Yngling crew.
