WYC Racing on Virtual Regatta

Need get your sailing fix while Social Distancing or Self Isolating? The RYA has organised for Whitstable Yacht Club to get a free VIP pass to enable us to organise club racing online! We’ve had a few practice races, and the game is fun and easy to use from a laptop, tablet or phone. To get started, go to https://www.virtualregatta.com/en/inshore-game/ or download the Virtual Regatta Inshore game from your app store, create a free account, and do the simple training sessions. Then, join a WYC race! 
We’re putting together a schedule based on volunteer organiser’s availability, so check here for the race start times: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hGaOQv4bd5HgBCHbWgsstQkaFL4XE8VTB5cjLLJjIcY/edit?usp=sharing.  There’s a limit of 20 sailors per race, so we suggest you log in at least 10 mins before to join. To connect to the race, log in, go to Custom Race, in the Join tab click the green padlock button at the bottom and add the code from the schedule above. There’ll be 3 back to back races per session, so after each race, repeat the process to join the race with the same code.
Each race needs an organiser to open and start the race, so if you’d like to get involved with organising more races and races at different times, please contact Robert Govier.
