VISC Club Championships

The Club Championship brings together the 5 main regatta series of the season, the Spring, Summer and Autumn Regattas, the Thursday Series and the Bob Pitt Memorial Trophy.

Skippers and their crews are awarded the same points for a regatta, based on your finishing position. The RYA Low Points System is then used to rank each sailor using their best 3 events. Ties are broken using the ‘most firsts’ rule, then if the tie is not broken their fourth event is used. In 2019 prizes will be awarded for the Overall Champion, the Lady’s Trophy and Best Newcomer
