Racing

Competitive sailing is a great way to enhance one’s sailing skills, socialise with other members, and simply enjoy the water. In its relatively short history, Nepean Sailing Club has grown to become one of the largest club racing fleets in Canada. We offer a comprehensive weeknight race series and weekend event program suitable for all levels of sailing ability and boats. The program is open to members of NSC and local area clubs.

Whether or not you own a boat, both members and newcomers are encouraged to come out and experience this aspect of sailing. So why not register your boat, join a race crew, or volunteer to check out the action?
