There is no quicker way to hone your sailing skills than racing around the buoys with a fleet of Sharks or Tanzers. Racing is an excellent way to push your basic sailing skills to a new level. You will go out sailing in conditions that you might not consider if you are just going out for a cruise. You will also learn how to use the spinnaker.
The goal of each night is to have fun, learn something new and try to put a few boats behind us at the end of the race. Then it’s back to the clubhouse for cocktails, some laughs and a great BBQ put on by the club caterers.
Be able to make a weekly commitment on Thursday nights from beginning of May until the end of September. You will need to be able to be at the boats by 5 pm to rig and get off dock by 5:30 pm at the very latest.
Four crew are assigned to a specific boat for the Thursday night One-design racing.
In the pre-season we we start working with the racing members to see who is coming back and who has already put together a crew. From there we know how many open racing membership spots we have left.
Monday night – Ladies Racing
Tuesday night – PHRF Racing
Thursday night – One Design Racing & JAM (Jib & Mail)
Reservation process – racers do get first call on the boats especially for special weekend events.
