HIRE A DARING
How can I hire a Daring for a weekend of racing?
Can I be taught to helm a Daring by an expert?
How to get involved:
Contact the class using the Contact Us page
State whether you are experienced or will need an experienced Daring helm to guide you
Pick three competent friends as crew
(two if you're requiring an experienced helm guide)
Pick your weekend of racing
(first come first served for all weekends May through October)
Fill in the appropriate documentation and pay the fee
(£350 total for two days of racing Sat/Sun, with special rates for Cowes Week and other events. For details, Contact Us)
Arrive in Cowes, receive appropriate guidance and then head out to the start line!
(note: we would encourage you and your crew to familiarise yourselves with the Daring under expert guidance before racing - all included in your weekend fees)
NOT CONFIDENT HELMING ON YOUR OWN?
Helming a Daring in a race may be a daunting thought for the inexperienced helm.
If so, why not hire a Daring along with an experienced helm who can get you on/off the mooring, take control in an emergency, but otherwise guide you through your first few races?
There is no better (or other!) way to learn than via experience.
