During the summer, the “Introduction to Racing” class is offered on Monday evenings. This popular course draws beginning sailors and racers as well as many long-time crews looking to move into the back of the boat. The class culminates in a regatta in which the novice racers have the chance to exhibit their new skills. The winner becomes the Novice Regatta Champ.
