Virtual Regatta Inshore - Lockdown Cup 2020

Whilst we are unable to get out and sail on the water, we have with the kind support of Virtual Regatta and the RYA, the ability to run virtual sailing and racing.
Students have been running their own informal open "Teatime Series" and now that school has recommenced, we will be adding a Junior Series and a Senior Series to this.
Once you have set up your accounts (see below for more information), simply log in and join the race at the following times:

MONDAY AFTERNOON

** Junior Series at 3.30pm ** Senior Series at 4.30pm **

We will run a meet session at the same time to allow you to chat / organise / call tactics across the water to each other.


Results of the racing can be found on the Lockdown Cup 2020 Results Page

More about Virtual Regatta Inshore....

Virtual Regatta Inshore is an online game that can be played on a computer, tablet or phone. To start playing participants will need to create an account using an email address and the site terms require an adult to approve any account creation.


Parents should be aware that this site is an open public game which includes the ability to live chat during sailing and participate in forums. Because of this we recommend following standard internet safety advice and being aware of your child’s use of this site and allowing them to report any concerns they have to you. The game also allows the purchase of credits which allow access to other features. There is no need to purchase these as they can be earnt through playing the game and we would strongly discourage paying for these.


As a school we will schedule specific times where we will run racing in a private arena and will publish the times and codes within Google Classroom. During these times there will always be a member of staff present to support the racing. This racing will be scheduled during the afternoon to allow students to take a break from other studies and is entirely optional to join.


Please be aware however that outside of these scheduled times your children will still be able to access the site any play unless you have additional internet/app usage controls.
