Corporate Regatta I Barcelona Royal Yacht Club
Sailing is a natural team-building activity. Participants have to work together well, communicate efficiently and have well-defined roles and responsibilities simply to make the yacht move! Our sailing regattas offer a unique and thrilling way to experience Barcelona Harbour. Participants sail aboard fully equipped yachts. Each team is led by qualified and experienced skippers, who will guide and encourage every member of the crew to take an active part in the steering and sailing of the yacht. Your team will first learn the basics of sailing. Unless otherwise advised, all terms will be defined assuming you are all complete newcomers to the sport. Sailing is easy, but becoming a truly expert can take years. There’s always something more to learn…once you catch the sailing bug you’ll want to learn it all!
The Director of Sailing will brief all teams on the Basic Principles of Sailing Yachts: Sailing Downwind, Sailing Upwind, Reaching -Sailing across the Wind, Stopping… Once these principles are mastered, you will have the basic knowledge required to sail off, turn round and return.
Sailing is an active sport and racing particularly does require a certain level of fitness and mobility for each of the crew to move around the boat and to pull ropes. Lifejackets will be provided, but you need to come prepared to be outside for a couple of hours. Soft-soled shoes, or boots that will give you adequate grip whilst not marking the decks are essential. Lots of warm layers are better than thick layers as you’ll get hot at times. Waterproofs are essential -golfing or walking types will be sufficient, as we won’t be venturing afloat in really adverse conditions. Sailing gloves (available from any online chandler) will also be required. It may also be beneficial to bring a change of clothes as well.
Features of the Race – Racing teams: 6-7 crew members per cruise plus a qualified skipper. – Cruises: For the competition to be as balanced as possible, all cruises will be 12- 13meters long and be identical or very similar. – The committee boat: This boat will decide who the winner is at the finish line apart from undertaking its usual duties as a committee boat.
