RPYC Team Racing Squad is open to all sailing members of the Club. However, if you are interested in taking part and are not a Royal Perth member please contact the Sailing Office. We normally give you a ‘try before you buy’ trial.

The Squad has been running since 2012, and during the year we train once or twice per month on the club BW8’s. For the last 2yrs and at present we have an excellent coach in Jess Eastwell who has vast Team Racing, Match Racing, general sailing and coaching experience.

We attend 1 or 2 international team racing regattas each year. We have been doing the Royal Thames Yacht Club Cumberland Cup since its inception in the early 2000’s, and in the past have travel to Porto Cervo to compete in Yacht Club Costa Smeralda’s inaugural team racing regatta. Every two years we travel to NE US to compete in regattas at Corinthian Yacht Club (Massachusettes) and Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club (Long Island, NY).

If you want further information please do not hesitate to contact the club Sailing Office.

Keep up to date with the happenings of the RPYC Team Racing squad via our Facebook group -

Also, a reminder that training sessions are free for Club members. Funds raised during the Quiz Night are covering any extra coaching costs not covered by the Club or other costs deemed appropriate by the TR Committee.
