Team Racing is an intense and exciting variant of normal fleet racing. Teams of 3 boats compete not to secure an individual victory but to obtain the lowest possible joint score in the race. Achieving a winning combination is not just about boat speed but also utilising a mastery of tactics, boat control and exceptional team work to out manouver your opponents.
