Racing

Race Nights (Tuesdays)

Race nights are on Tuesdays this week. Be out and ready to race by 6:30 pm. 

One instructor will be part of the race committee this year, which is layman’s terms they will run the races.

If you are new to racing or not yet ready to sail please feel free to come down and meet the other sailors who will help guide you with race committee duties while you ride about in the committee boat or by helping find a spot for you in one of the sailboats to act as crew. Cheering from shore is certainly acceptable as well. It is all in the name of fun and a great learning opportunity.

If you do plan on racing that evening it is best to arrive early to rig your boat, look for a boat to occupy with another sailor as crew or to help set the course with the instructors.

Racing Instructions:

A number of resources are available for the KSC sailor/racer. You don’t need to know all of these by heart, but it helps to take a look at the course, and a basic grasp of the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) will get you far. The Sailing Instructions (SIs) is the document that “tunes” the RRS to our club setup, and has details about how we run races (and any “house rule” changes to the RRS).

Any questions or forms can be addressed to the sailing director (sailing@kanatasailingclub.com) or the commodore (commodore@kanatasailingclub.com)
