Two days ago we posted an article about SCIRA Team Race, a Promotion Committee initiative. BUT What is Team Racing? Why Team Racing and how do we learn about Team Racing?
By Gavin O'Hare
WHAT is Team Racing?
- Each race is a match between two teams comprised of multiple boats
- Typically 3 or 4 boats per team, but 2v2 (last-place-loses) works too!
- The winning team is the one with the lower total finish:
- 1+4+5 (10 points) beats 2+3+6 (11 points)
- 2+3+4 (9 points) beats 1+5+6 (12 points)
- Team races are typically short in duration: 6 – 15 minutes per race

Ernesto and RJ Rodriguez captured the 2016 Snipe Tea Party in strong fashion with a string of race victories. After a slow start in the first two races father and son rolled off four straight wins and then finished the seven race series with a third to win by four points over the father and daughter team of Hal and Emily Gilreath.
A dozen teams from Boston to Charleston to Atlanta to Miami joined the local Jacksonville fleet to sail seven races on a gorgeous weekend. The weather was warm and sunny with the breeze varying from 5 to 15 knots. It was hard to beat this type of sailing as PRO, Pat Lambert, ran the races with skill and efficiency
