Cavalcade Summer 2018
Greetings fellow Cavaliers. I trust you have all survived the Christmas holiday period intact and are now enjoying being back at work (not).
Speaking personally, it seems harder each year to have the old head switched from holiday mode to work mode after the Christmas break. I find myself nodding off to sleep...[more]

RaceQs is the exciting new way to review your races and improve your on the water performance. By logging your track and comparing it with other competitors you are able to see where you are doing well and what aspect you need to improve.
Are your competitors sailing closer to the wind and slower or a little more bow down & fast?
Are you keeping up down wind but need to get your changes done quicker or taking off from the mark but losing ground in the drag race to the down wind mark?
How is your tacking? Fast and furious? Or just furious?!!!
All becomes clear as you use this amazing tool to fine tune your performance.
See the RaceQs page for replays of last season, tips, examples and more.

It was designed in New Zealand by Laurie Davidson, a designer famous for racing boats (including successful defenders and challengers for the America’s Cup), and now has an active owners’ association based in Sydney Harbour.
