April - September

SCI Flotilla offers in Croatia, Greece, Italy and Turkey for 2023

Open for club members that do not have a skipper license, but wish to go sailing with an experienced skipper (Yachtmaster) by booking a Cabin charter. It is also open to the club members that have a skipper license and want to charter their own yacht and join a flotilla, so we can have a few boats sailing together with a lead boat and skipper as guide planning the route.

Organized by VISC

Fix in the programme

Here you find more information about our special events. Our club own regatta for example, takes place three times a year. We also organize an Adriatic Sailing Week in Croatia and a Lake Balaton Cruise Weekend in Hungary.

The Winners

Champions
& Trophies

The club awards trophies for the winners of several regattas and for the overall club champion at the end of the season.

The rules for deciding the prize-winners

Open to all members

The VISC Club Championship is open to all members who sail in any club race, helms, crews, skippers and mates alike.

Club events

Each club event counts towards the Club Championship. Members need to participate in at least two different events.

Points for positions in each event

The points awarded to each competitor are the position of the boat in each event counted.

Low Points System

The Racing Rules of Sailing Appendix A ‘Low Points System’ is used

Ties

Ties are not broken until a prize is involved

Three prize categories

Prizes are awarded to the Overall winner, the highest placed Lady and the highest placed Junior (under 21). These three prizes are intended to be perpetual, i.e. returned and re-awarded each year.

Donations

Other prizes may be awarded in future if members donate them.

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
