Sailing Logic win RORC Schoolboat of the Year for 10th consecutive year!

We are excited to confirm that have been awarded the prestigious David Fayle Memorial Trophy for the "Schoolboat of The Year" for a record breaking 10th consecutive year, by the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC).

This accolade is awarded to the RYA approved training centre which scores the highest number of points in The RORC IRC Championships throughout the season. This year, Sailing Logic’s brand new Beneteau First 40 Arthur Logic is the highest scoring school yacht! 

Sailing Logic was founded by Allie Smith in 1993 with the purpose of providing opportunities for people to access the sport of yacht racing. Allie comments “I am so proud that Sailing Logic has retained the trophy for a record breaking 10th year! Over this time we have worked really hard to get hundreds of people involved in offshore yacht racing, and this award proves that there is a place for everyone, even novice racers, in this competitive sport!”

Nick Martin who skippered Arthur Logic for most of the 2014 racing season added “It is an amazing feeling to win this trophy. Most of the races Arthur Logic competed in were part of Sailing Logic’s Round Ireland Race campaign. Our crew met each other for the first time in May, most of them having never raced offshore before!  It is a steep learning curve for most people and fantastic that a newly formed team can compete with regular race crews and get on the podium too!”

It is a great achievement for a single sailing school to consistently demonstrate such good race results, and speaks volumes about the quality of training, the yachts, skippers and first mates provided. In addition to running the full RYA syllabus, Sailing Logic has developed its own unique race training courses and offers race places for individuals in many race events, including RORC race weekends, the RORC Caribbean 600 and Rolex Fastnet Race!

The award will be presented to Sailing Logic at the RORC Prizegiving Dinner on Saturday 15 November in London.
