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.

Johnston Trophy Race

The Johnston Race is the "racers race" winners and competitve sailors will battle it out in a one-design round robin set of races for minor bragging rights.  In the past we've used Catalina 25's and Lidos 14's.  This year will likely be in Sunfish.  Plan for some fun in the sun.
