Once again this summer we are offering weekend race days. There will be two races in 2017: Saturday, July 15, 2017 and Saturday August 19, 2017, plus the Annual Club Championships (10th Anniversary Regatta) Sunday, August 6, 2017.

Race Organization

Boats: You are allowed to bring your own boat or borrow a club boat upon request. Please talk to the head instructor or a director of Junior Sailing.

Courses: The race committee (a club volunteer) will announce the course to be sailed before the race and set marks accordingly. For keelboats, surrounding islands may be announced as course marks before the race.

Start: There will be a separate start for each class of boat. There will be a 5 minute countdown starting sequence with whistle signals. The race committee will set two starting marks for a start line. The first race will start at 1:00pm.

Rules: The rules will be the same as those written in The Racing Rules of Sailing. The rulebook is available for purchase at LBSC.

Scoring: The scoring will be a high-point (reverse) scoring system based on the number of boats in each class. For example, if there are 3 Lasers in a race, 1st place would get 3 points, 2nd = 2 points, and 3rd = 1 point (the more sailboats in a race, the more potential points). Points will be added up throughout the summer and the overall winners for each class will be announced at the LBSC awards night in August.
