Match Racing at the Aberdeen Boat Club

What is dinghy match racing...

  • 1v1 racing over a two lap windward / leeward course.

  • Each team will consist of a helm and crew.

  • We will have two races going on course starting 5 minutes apart.

  • Races are 10 minutes long and teams change opponents each time.

  • Teams that are not racing will wait on the committee boat.

  • There are specific procedures for the start, protesting and on the water umpiring.

  • The format is often a round robin followed by a knockout finals round if time permits.
