Sunfish Orientation

If you're interested in using the club's Sunfish sailboats, you must attend a Sunfish Orientation.  This orientation will show you how check a boat out, launch the boat, prepare it for sailing, and return it.  This is not a "how to sail" class.  If you think sailing a sunfish on a warm sunny day at Howard Prairie sounds like fun, make plans to attend a Sunfish Orientation.

Jensen Distance Trophy Race

Time Change: Skipper's Meeting at 1:00 PM

This race is a distance race.  Course will be determined based upon the water levels.  Typically it is run as a PHRF pursuit race.  Small boats with no PHRF rating will be given a rating based upon the standard conversion formula from portsmouth.  All boats are welcome!

You must contact the race committee prior to race day in order to participate.  

This is so we can calculate your handicapped start time.

Commodore's Cup Trophy Race

This race was conceived by Peter Cipes during his years as commodore in 2004-2006. Originally intended for new or less experienced skippers, the Commodore’s Cup Race calls for somewhat lower key racing. In the past few years this trophy race has been opened up to All Comers. This year’s race committee invites one and all to come out and participate.. 

Skippers meeting is at 1:00PM
