Racing

The club has been the springboard for many
top area racers. Racing is not only competition – it is also a learning experience and a social event.
 
Starting in May, the club holds CL-16s races on Sundays at 12:00 PM. Laser only races begin in June and are held on Tuesday evenings, starting at 6:00 PM. Novice sailors are encouraged to come out as crew for the experienced skippers and get a glimpse of the racing scene. Although some races may become intense, the club's policy is to keep the racing at a fun and recreational level.
 
Once a week during the months of July and August (on Monday nights for 2013), the club runs a racing school to teach the rules of racing and some strategy. Students are given the chance to try out their new skills. A racing school championship is run at the end of the season. Members who are checked out as Racing Skippers, are permitted to take the boats off-river to compete in local regattas.
 

The following principles of sportsmanship, in addition to those described in the Racing Rules of Sailing govern all

races at the club: 

(a)  Club members participate in racing to have fun.
