Sail into Excitement: Wednesday Night Club Races
Step into the world of club racing following the completion of the Learn to Sail and Learn to Race programs. Able Sailors are welcome to join the action-packed Wednesday night Dinghy & Cat Club races. The focus of these races may vary, offering a dynamic and engaging experience. Currently, the spotlight shines on the 2.4 metres and Martin 16s classes, chosen due to their compatibility with the nearby NSC race course. A dedicated start will be assigned for sailors in these classes. Moreover, the club is also implementing a scheduling system to streamline boat allocation, sailor participation, sailing companions, and volunteers.
When: Wednesday evenings during the Summer Series – make sure to check nsc.ca/racing for specific details.
Time: 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
