Stay in touch with fellow Tech racers on Facebook:
Open Racing is part of the Summer Tech Series. Not quite as cut-throat as the Tuesday Advanced Racing series, we encourage all racers to participate with the expectation of competitive matchups at each level.
Those with beginner-to-intermediate skills can compete against and learn from the experts. These races are meant to help sailors improve their skills, but may also serve as a competitive though perhaps lower-stress racing series for more advanced racers.
Open racing assumes that you are familiar with the Racing Rules of Sailing (also see other references linked at the bottom of this page), how a race course works (you should know what a gate is), and have reasonable ability to start in a competitive fashion.
If you have taken the Learn to Race class, you should be ready for these races in Tech Dinghys.
Though no standard instruction is provided, there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and learn by doing. You can expect to have others help you from time to time, and give you pointers to move up to a more advanced racing level . . . although some may simply tell you "just follow me!"
