    Keelboat Racing: May 06

    Come out for the first keelboat race of the year! This is a special 'keelboat' only race, and ONLY monohulls of at least 19' in length, using either a fixed keel, swing keel, centerboard, or daggerboard are welcome to take part in the races.

    This promises to be a fun event, and there will surely be some excitement at the start line. Let's show those catamaran folks how it's done.

    First race starts at 3PM (meeting at 2PM), and we hope to see you there. We will have our customary pot-luck after the races, so come and join us on Saturday, 06-May!
