Wednesday Night Racing

Test your sailing skills every Wednesday this summer! SCSS will host and provide boats for an evening small boat racing series. This series is open to any sailor who has taken past classes at SCSS or can pass a basic sailing skills test.  This race series is all about improving your sailing skills in a fun, low pressure, casual race environment.

Never raced before? Don’t let that hold you back. Our instructors will go over the basic rules of the road and starting sequence.

Adults and youths are welcome to attend.  This is also a great way for parents to sail with their kids!

Wednesday night racing is for sailors of all ages who have some experience sailing. If you are unsure if you qualify, click here to contact us.
