ACTIVITIES / SCHEDULE

The Club has a Spring, Summer and Fall Series. Each Series is comprised of 6-7 race days.  The dates for racing can be found on our club schedule. On each race day we strive to race 7 races with one throw out.  We are currently focusing on the DF95 class although we also race Seawinds, Soling’s and EC12’s.  In the Spring and Fall we race on Saturdays. In the Summer we typically race on Fridays in order to avoid heavy lake and facility use. Many of our members travel to Regatta’s in other cities.
