Racing


2020 Club Championship This Sunday!

This Sunday August 30 is the Club Championship. (no racing on Saturday this year) The skippers meeting will be on Sunday at 10:00am and first race at 11:00.  There will be a lunch break and we will finish in the middle of the afternoon.   Likely 4 or 5 races.

The Notice Of Race is posted, and a reminder that this is an opportunity for everyone to try out their sailing skills and have some fun.

While we can’t have a potluck meal and corn like we have in the past,  we can all bring our own meals and snacks,  we can all enjoy the day at the club and perhaps have a bit of distanced social interaction outdoors.


All Arms Regatta 2020: July 19

The All Arms Race will be held on Sunday July 19th.  This is a friendly club pursuit race, where all the boats start at a time based on their speed, and with the finish line at the 2 hour mark.  The marks are set up each of the three ‘arms’ of the lake, and we sail around the lake in a prescribed direction, so it’s an interesting sail.  The finish line will be set out where the lead boat is at the designated finish time: 4:00 PM.  In an ideal world, all the boats should converge on the finish line at the same time.  It’s a lot of fun and everyone, whether you are a novice or an experienced sailor, is welcome. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for candidates for our Broken Rudder award!

The Wayfarer class will start at approximately 2:00 pm.  Skippers meeting time TBA.  No need to register, just show up and join in. See also our Racing page. Current Start Times list can be downloaded here.

After the race we will gather to socialize, at a distance. Bring your own food & drink.

Virtual Regatta announcement – updated!

With luck, we will be racing on the water again soon.  Until then, let’s get together online.  On Wednesday May 20th at 7:00 we held our first virtual Wednesday night race.  It’s a fantastic way to get back into race mode and to practice our tactics. To avoid scheduling issues, subsequent races may be either Wednesday or Thursday evening, from 7:30 to about 9:00.

Next Virtual Race will be on Wed. June 10, at 7:30.

Virtual Regatta (eSailing) Inshore is aimed at everyone from expert sailors to newbies and can bring the excitement of small sailboat racing to your home. It’s easy to use and also has a training feature so people can easily learn how to use the game or even learn the basics of sailing.

If you have not used Virtual Regatta before, please download and review the CSC eSailing Guide, create a profile, and complete the training.  On Wednesday May 20th, we will gather on Google Meet at 7:00, and start races soon afterwards, with a maximum of 5 races.

To get the Google Meet info, or if you have any questions, please contact Fleet Captain Graham Moogk-Soulis, at fleetcaptain@kwsailing.org.
