Keelboat Racing: 14-May!

Come out for the second race of the year, and the first of two for May. 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, and we hope to see you there. We will have our customary pot-luck after the races, so come and join us on Saturday, 14-May!

Make Up RACE!

August 15th will be a make-up race for June. After having 11 boats at the start line, the June race had to be cancelled due to lightning. We will be making up that date on Saturday August 15 with a 2pm start. Please note this is one hour earlier due to the Shrimp Boil. It does not matter; national champion or novice, there will be someone on your level to run against. Racing is a great way to improve your skill set and the leaders are always happy to answer questions and offer support when asked. We hope to see you at the start line!!!
