REVAMPED CLUB CLASS FOR 2020

We are making Club Class even more attractive for its fourth year. The Club Class which pioneered in 2017 is being expanded and improved for 2020. This Class is open to sailors who want to participate in the on-the-water action but who may not take their racing as seriously as others and don’t want to incur all the usual expenses. Highlights of the Class Rules are:

  • The entry fee is US $7 per foot of measured overall length.
  • The Class will be scored using Variable Simplified CSA Handicap. Boats without a full CSA Rating must request a CSA Simplified Rating to be issued prior to the first day’s racing at a cost of US $50.
  • Boats may enter as jib and main (pole or no pole) only or with spinnakers.
  • There will be one race per day for the Class with no throw-outs.
  • Courses will be shorter with less emphasis on windward/leeward performance.
  • COMPLETE RULES can be found here.
