Battle of the Fleets 2017 


Members... you are invited to take part in the Battle of the fleets!

Saturday, 8th April 2017 - £250 per boat (only £50pp team of 5)

What is the Battle of the Fleets?

The Battle of the Fleets is an annual event giving members of QMSC the opportunity to experience fleet racing in J80 keelboats. Reviewing its previous success, the event will be run all day and aims to complete 10 back-to-back 1-2 lap races.


Who is Eligible?

In previous years we have had boats comprised from the Laser and RS400 fleets, Saturday Club, Youth Group Parents and Select Members. However, we are always looking for more competitors!! We require at least one crew member over 18 years old who has relevant keelboat/yachting experience, and or have sufficient dinghy sailing experience. There is no minimum age on crew, however all crew must be an appropriate size to ably manage the boat in up to 20 knots of wind and again have relevant sailing experience. All crew members must be approved by Greg Dawson before competing.

How do I book my team onto the event?

First you need to register your interest with Greg Dawson (details below). It is a good idea to identify all 4/5 members of your team before contacting Greg. If you are an individual not part of a team, register your interest and Greg will do his best to find you a boat for the event. If you are eligible to participate your team can then schedule a training session from the dates available and a boat will be allocated to you for the event. From there you will be directed to pay via the office.
