Oakcliff Challenge 2015 



Oakcliff Sailing is excited to announce the inaugural Oakcliff Challenge. We created this in-house as a result of the recent discussions in Scuttlebutt about the growing demand for a more exciting, varied, social racing format. 

Dave Perry

We are inviting all Yacht Clubs, Sailing Centers, and College Sailing Teams to join Oakcliff for three days of multi-format racing.  The day one clinic will be run by rules and tactics expert Dave Perry to get teams up to speed in the Match 40s. Anyone who has been to a Dave Perry clinic can testify to how entertaining, educational and fun the day is. Day two will be a day of short fleet races with real-time coaching, and finally day three will see the champions crowned after an ISAF grade 5 match race regatta.  There will be a fleet race winner, a match race winner and an overall winner. The event will be held June 12-14, 2015 at Oakcliff Sailing in Oyster Bay, NY.

We expect a lot of fun and camaraderie where we will have as many of the teams that want to, stay in the new Bunkhouse and spend their evenings commingling and socializing. 

 This new and exciting format is a great opportunity to race the sleek Match 40 in high intensity short course racing, and to learn and apply many of the match racing tactics that will take your fleet racing to another level and importantly add a social side to the event.
