A call to all “off the beach” class associations!
The Four Of A Kind (FOAK) Regatta revives the original annual Chelsea FOAK regatta which was once used by VYC to set and refine the class yardsticks.
By hosting the FOAK regatta Chelsea Yacht Club proudly supports and promotes the wonderful diversity of classes of “off the beach” sailing dinghies, catamarans and boards that are such an integral part of our Victorian sailing activity. The Chelsea Yacht Club FOAK Regatta is the premier class versus class event on the Victorian sailing calendar.
Support your class by showing your class! This is the big event in the sailing calendar in which class associations can win prize money! Bring your fellow association sailors and boats along and join in the Four Of A Kind regatta. Be part of a great day of unique class versus class racing.
Whether you sail a newer class or an older established class, get behind Chelsea Yacht Club and keep our sport thriving through encouraging your class association to participate and promote your class’s unique expression of the sailing experience. We want your class to thrive!
Any class that can get at least four boats on the water will qualify for the FOAK Class Championship which will be based on class yardstick corrected finishing positions.
There is a $500 cash prize to the class association that gets the most boats on the water and $300 cash prize to class association that gets the second most boats on the water.
There are also cash prizes to the class association with:
First combined handicap results over best four = $300
