The Team Racing Squad was established in 2012. Since 2019 the Squad has been coached by Adam Brenz-Verca. Adam has provided excellent on water discipline, tactics and skill development, resulting in obvious improved performance of our squad.
The Squad trains every fortnight most months of the year using the Club’s fleet of BW8 training yachts. Members of the squad can also opt to attend International Team Racing Regattas!
RPYC’s Team Racing Squad has been attending the Royal Thames Yacht Club Cumberland Cup since its inception in the early 2000’s, and in the past have travelled to Porto Cervo to compete in Yacht Club Costa Smeralda’s inaugural Invitational Team Racing Challenge. Every two years a group travels to the US to compete in regattas at Corinthian Yacht Club (Massachusetts) and Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club (Long Island, NY).
In early 2020, RPYC’s team travelled to Tasmania to compete in the inaugural Australian Keelboat Team Racing Championship. Great optimism came out of that regatta for more Team Racing regattas nationally.
During the year, the Club runs two practice regattas which we call the Impromptu Cup. The story behind the name is that the regatta was created when another scheduled regatta failed to get enough nominations. So, the Team Racing Squad was asked if they would like to conduct an informal training regatta; and so the Impromptu Cup was created.
