How to get started
Below are the steps to take (if you are using a PC) – there are mobile app options for your phone or tablet if you prefer. First though, watch this video to get a good feel for how it all works.
Then it is probably a good idea to at least go through steps 1 – 3 before your first actual race.
Go to the Virtual Regatta site https://www.virtualregatta.com/en/ and choose Virtual Regatta – Inshore
Create an account (if you don’t have one) or enter as a guest
After setting up an account, or choosing to enter as a guest, then you will be taken through a tutorial in the form of a few exercises. Some are more intuitive than others!
Continue with these steps prior to a scheduled custom race
Now, to join a Waldringfield private race, you need to choose custom race.
Ignore the pop up window in the foreground and click on the “Join” tab behind it.
Click on the green button with the padlock
Enter the race code (that we will share on this page prior to the race) and you will be launched into the race area. Try to make a mental note of the course, and stay alert as the countdown is just 75 seconds!
