Why should I race?
Racing is fun, that will improve your sailing skills and also give you a chance to make new friends! You can learn more about sailing in one weekend of racing, than a month of cruising. We have great fellowship and team bonding after all races, where we sit down and talk about what did or did not work out and how we can improve ourselves for the next time out on the water.
The Hebe Haven Racing program is about creating opportunities for racing experiences, for competitive sailors at all levels, with high level coaching, best suited to your individual sailing needs and racing goals within the sport.
Teamwork and sportsmanship is stressed in a supportive environment. The program is customized for sailors keen about racing Lasers (Radial and 4.7) and Optimist.
The program is designed to provide comprehensive and intensive training, and practice racing format, coupled with local regattas in Port Shelter, as well as travelling to national and regional events.
Who can join?
Admittance to the Racing program is by application and with the permission of the Racing Coach and STC manager, based on skills, experience and interest. If you are a sailor aged between 7-18 years old who know how to sail in close quarters with other boats and is looking for a challenge, come and join the Hebe Dragons!
