Royal Perth Match
The RP Knights – bringing the joust back to Matilda Bay!
Perth match racing rebooted!

RPYC is seeking expressions of interest to establish a grassroots Match Racing programme in Perth. Short course match racing is the most exhilarating and time-friendly form of the sport we love. There is no better way to improve your fleet racing in terms of boat handling, rules knowledge, tactics and teamwork.

The Concept
We want to take a “let’s have a blast” approach aimed at enjoyment, time friendliness and of course skill development.
Royal Perth Match will use the club’s fleet of matched BW8 keelboats. As a member of the RPM squad you will have the opportunity to participate in:

  • Practice sessions coached by a variety of experienced match racers.
  • Occasional Mini Challenges.
  • Potential to compete in 3 match Racing Events hosted by RPYC, RFBYC and SoPYC in the coming season.
  • Who knows what this may lead to?

Membership of the squad
RPM is open to all club members.
Don’t forget, annual RPYC Crew membership now costs only $340.

Your contribution
Apart from providing us with your wonderful company, you will need to be prepared to help out with the conduct of some sessions. RPYC will provide training where needed.

Start date
We hope to be off and racing with the first practice session by the end of July.
If you want to be part of this exciting initiative please register your interest with me ASAP.

Best wishes
Chris Goldacre
Club Development Officer
