Sailboat Racing 101:  A Classroom & On-the-Water


This one-day seminar is open to sailors who have completed the 2023 LCYC Sailing School (SS) course, alumni from past SS courses, and members of the LCYC.  If you do not meet the preceding enrollment criteria, please submit a sailing resume to Bruce Santerre,  An enrollment decision will be made based on your sailing experience. Enrollment will be capped at 16 students. 

The purpose of this seminar is to introduce sailors to the racing basics and fundamentals.  In the morning classroom session, students will review sailing safety and learn the sailboat racing rules.  During on-the-water training, students will practice basic sailboat and sail handling skills on a keelboat with an experienced race skipper.  Students will be able to apply the skills and knowledge learned through the sailing school and classroom session during practice starts and an actual race.
