  • Easy

The race starts at 7PM, so we will leave  slip C16 no later than 6:30PM.

Don't be intimidated by the word "race." This is a fun race where times are kept, but the "winners" names are drawn from a bag. So all skill levels are welcome, and no one will get annoyed and no one will get yelled at if mistakes are made. And to top it all off, free beer and hot dogs are available at the post race party!

The Sailing Essentials

Don’t leave the dock without these items! They make sailing safer for you and your crewmates. As a carrier, use a soft duffel bag for easy stowing without metal buckles that can scratch woodwork.

  • Non-skid deck shoes (or sea boots) with non-marking soles.
  • Heavy-duty gloves (preferably leather) for line handling (fingertips cut off is OK).
  • Warm clothing head to foot (Note: The ambient temperature on the water is usually lower than on land).
  • Foul-weather gear
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Knife on lanyard
  • Whistle on a lanyard
  • Food and drink
  • Headlamp or flashlight
