Irish eSailing Winter Challenge


The eSailing Winter Challenge

As the evenings grow shorter and the days colder, Irish Sailing is delighted to announce The Irish eSailing Winter Challenge to get you through to the spring!

The series will pit the top sailors from Irish eSailing Leagues against each other to determine the best eSailing team in Ireland.

Across Ireland there are several eSailing leagues being organised by clubs, classes, friends, and families, with hundreds of sailors competing. If you are part of or run an eSailing League, we want you to get in touch and submit your team for The Winter eSailing Challenge.

The format:

The competition will be knockout, with teams of 5 eSailors facing off against one another each week until only one remains.

Each match will consist of 5 races, with the first team to 3 race wins declared the winner. Teams will face-off in a mix of team and match races, in different boats and venues, as follows:

  • Two 5x5 team races
  • A 3x3 team race
  • A 2x2 Team Race
  • A 1x1 match race

Each team must include one female member each member will sail a minimum of three races over the match.

Depending on the number of teams there may be a seeding round and/or round robin style competition prior to the knockout rounds.
