One-Design Racing Practice

learn to race

Goal: Gaining experience in tactical sailing in racing situations. Boats sail close together and try to sail fast around courses, using spinnakers when possible. Everyone carries an individual score, earning points toward season-long trophy for the "Small boat Champions" (last awarded in 2008).
Open to "Skippers" with experience; and to "Crew" with Level 1 skills.

Racing is cordial and exciting. You can pick up the rules as you learn by doing. It is okay to join in as your schedule permits. Teams are made up on the dock depending on who shows up. You can give it a try as soon as you've finished Level 1. Participate in a four week series, or aim for the whole season. Participation is encouraged. More boats on the water keeps it interesting for everyone. It is not a requirement that you know how to sail with spinnakers before joining in with the racing, but you may want to plan to take the Spinnakers! class too, to learn how to get better downwind speed from your boat!

Guest R19 boats and crews from outside the Sailing School also participate (registration required).

Tuition/fee per day.
