How to start racing 

Keeping it simple, casual and fun in a relaxed fleet will make you enjoy your boat even more. For many sailors, the world of sailboat racing is completely foreign. It can be an intimidating experience filled with complicated rules, fancy gear and packed starting lines filled with yelling. And while that might describe the scene at high-profile events, most of the racing happening every week at yacht clubs and sailing clubs around the country is much different. Racing can be fun, casual and a great excuse to use your boat more often.

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston sails out
for Route du Rhum Transatlantic Race

He Might be the oldest skipper in the race, but Sir Robin Knox-Johnston remained confident as he left the UK to compete in a 3,500 mile transatlantic solo route. It’s 45 years since he became the first man to sail solo, non-stop, around the world in 1968-1969. Now aged 75, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, is competing in the Route du Rhum race, starting from St Malo, France, early next month.
