Regatta Fleet: If you have some racing experience but haven’t yet participated in major regattas, the Regatta Fleet is the ideal stepping stone for you. Compete against like-minded sailors and take your skills to the next level.

Main Fleet: For those with extensive racing experience and a history of participating in multiple regattas, the Main Fleet offers a competitive stage to showcase your prowess on the water. It’s where the best of the best come to battle it out and claim victory.
