RYA eSailing Winter Club Championship

Represent your club at the winter club champs!
Following the success of the RYA eSailing Spring Club Championship, where 180 clubs put forward their best eSailors to compete for the regional and national crowns, we launched the RYA eSailing Winter Club Championship on the 21st November at the Affiliated Club Conference.

Clubs across the country ran a winter series or championship in order to crown their champion. This sailor went on to represent the club in a regional final and winners progressed to the national final streamed live during the virtual RYA Dinghy Show on the 27th February 2021.
