Aventura is proud to announce the launch of Aventura Racing, a program designed for our more competitive members who want to learn how to compete in fleet races.
The racing program will be designed around 3 courses, with curricula to be announced:
- R101 - Introduction to Yacht Racing
- R201 - Random-leg Racing Strategies
- R301 - Ocean Racing Fundamentals
R101 and R201 will be conducted on our new 2020 Beneteau First 27. R301 will be conducted on one of our 40'+ yachts.
Aventura Racing Membership is a program designed to get you familiar with boat racing and gives you access to our First 27 a minimum of once a week. There will be 3 teams of 6, each composed of 1 instructor/coach, and 5 crew. Each team will have availability of the boat for 1 training session per week and 1 race on the weeks when races are held. Teams will compete in the beer can races, the Dana Point Series, as well as selected local races. Aventura Racing will field the teams based on availability and competitiveness and will make available additional boats to accommodate the Racing Members that where not selected to race on the First 27.
Time Commitment & Cost
Due to the high amount of wear and tear involved with any type of racing, we ask our Race Team members for a monthly commitment of $ 600 in addition to the regular dues and a time commitment of a minimum of 6 months.
This translates in roughly in $75/outing which is usually 3 hours or more. We feel that $25/hour on a raceboat with carbon rig, carbon sails, spinnaker and racing gear is a competitive price in this market.
If you are interested in learning more, please contact the office and ask to add your name to the signup sheet.
