Racing

This is about events which are not organized by the VISC, but e.g. by the local sailing federation or any other local club or organizer (for club races please refer to Programme).

There might be a point in time where sometimes, just sailing, is not enough anymore. One way of re-injecting some excitement as we felt it during our first sailing lessons could be —> RACING!

Why we love it

Here just some examples why we do it, what we do and what it does with us:

We (Man-Kind) love to compete, want to show that we are the best, toughest and coolest, what we are mostly and most likely not, but at least we try – and that’s already cool (as long as we don’t go overboard ;-).

We seek for the perfect tack, the perfect jibe, the perfect trim, the optimum heel (but not the highest heel – that would be a high heel – at least). We learn to maneuver within limited space fast, secure and efficient („jibe in 3 2 1“). We increase our self confidence what will for sure positively reflect on our crew during our next cruise. We enjoy the lovely and excited talks with other addicted maniacs and last but not least the well earned food and drinks after a race day… and some of us even win…
