Summary In the winter of 2018/2019, BlueOne will take part in the Goofies series for the first time. The start/finish line is just outside Colijnsplaat harbour entrance and the races around cans are quickly finished in a few hours in the afternoon. During the past years we have seen that the organisers are very kind: the colder it gets, the shorter the race track is! On the Sundays after the Goofies, we offer additional sailing training with spinnaker handling (weather permitting).
About the race
The Goofies Winter Race is sailed in Colijnsplaat, the home port of BlueOne, on the first Saturday of the month from October to April. These winter competitions started in 1984 and were originally organised by two sailors, both with the first name Goof. The Goofies are an informal race where having fun is the main objective. Over the years, the number of participants has grown to a large sailing event with many competitive teams.
How much will it cost?
The Participation Fee is EUR 90 per sailor.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME?
At winter time the conditions can be harsh (windy and cold) so make sure you are well equipped for these events (full sailing gear: waterproofs, sailing boots, sailing gloves and layers to keep you warm during the race). BlueOne's usual wind and temperature limits apply, so be prepared for a last minute cancellation.
