A fun and informal sailboat race series where new sailors can gain valuable experience and grow their sailing network with other Seaforth Members. Everyone welcome! We will have a themed race and after party once a month, the first Thursday of the month. At the after parties we will recap the month before and give awards! Seaforth will provide snacks every week and food at after party events, but members are still encouraged to bring food to share (Pot-Luck style). BYOB or can buy at Seaforth Mission Bay.
Overall Race Series Information:
**Note: April 19th date will be held in our CORONADO location at 1715 Strand Way, Coronado, CA.**
Races run April through September, every Thursday night.
Member rate: Always $10 for members, whether they reserve in advance or not. (Cannot use dues).
Non-Member rate: $15 for guests.
Members and guests get $5 off their first time!
Members are STRONGLY encouraged to reserve in advance! Boats will be filled based on the number of reservations, not by showing up or calling the day of race. These races are during our busiest season, a Capri 22 will be available to book for all renters during this time, so if members do not reserve ahead of time the non-reserved sailors will lose their spot in the race.
Sailor check in at 4:45 to 5. At 5pm, there will be a brief pre-race meeting with the Sail Club director, where we will assign skippers and teams and go over rules and courses. We will head to the boats at 5:15pm. Five minute warning will be around 5:35pm or TBA.
Our priority is to have FUN, introduce non-sailors to the sport and to Seaforth, and to support sailor growth.
There will be at least one experienced sailor (a Skipper) per boat to avoid mishaps during the races and to avoid any collisions with our adjacent private dock (E Dock.) This will be taken very seriously this season!
We will have a themed race and after party once a month, the Thursday at the beginning of the month. These after parties will recap the month before and give awards to most improved sailors, most spirited sailors, and best dressed sailors!
