Cruising Fleet

2016 season overview

Cruisers kicked off the season. Click to see 2015 Cruising Fleet Booklet .
Wednesday Night Racing begins in May and runs into October, with many races scheduled, 6:30 p.m. starts. All members, SAMs and juniors are encouraged to crew. Everyone who shows up will get a spot on a boat—club policy is “no one gets left on the dock.”

Weekend Racing starting time is 3:00 p.m. (except Stratford Shoals Races) to encourage post-race socializing. This is being coordinated with the One-Design races so that all racers should be coming in off the water at 5:00- 5:30 p.m., a perfect time to join your friends on the clubhouse deck to watch the sunset and discuss the day’s racing.

Memorial Day Weekend will have cruising boat and One-Design regattas. There will be an informal gathering after racing on Sunday, at 5:30 p.m. (after getting some sleep) to trade stories about the race.
