Wednesday Night Racing

April 20th to September 28th

Wednesday night is sailing night.  It's the only proven way to get through the mid week blues!  We run multiple series, each comprising 4 or 5 races, sponsored by local businesses.  Each series is scored under Echo and IRC.  Echo ratings are revised at the end of each series.
