After five races over two consecutive Tuesdays in April, we identified Alan Bull (VR name "Bullett" - short for "Bullet-a-Gate", D says!) as our VR Champion for the RYA's Spring e-Sailing Championship. Across the UK the regional finals are being held now in preparation for the national final on Saturday 30 May.
Two qualifying rounds (5 races, 2 discards) were held on Saturday 16 May. The results are below. As one of the top 19, Alan is through to the Regional Finals.
The South Region Finals (5 races, 2 discards) will take place on Saturday 23 May from 11AM. Club members can watch the racing live through Virtual Regatta (VR). Sign into VR, click on Custom Race then the video camera and then find the race name, 'RYA South Final', and select that race. A guide to spectating can be downloaded here - VirtualRegatta-SpectatorsGuide.pdf.
