What is Fun Racing and How Can I Participate?
Fun Racing is held most in June, July and August at Monroe Harbor. It’s available all summer long for members who are looking for a fun and exciting way to improve sailing skills. Open Racing is not a class, but any member who either has completed or is currently enrolled in an on-the-water course can participate.
While friendly competition is featured, the emphasis is on having fun while learning racing strategy and practicing new skills. Typically, a single Open Racing day allows for several short races, offering less-experienced sailors plenty of opportunity to learn from more experienced racers. The number of races will vary from week to week, depending on wind and weather conditions. The skipper and crew rotate positions in the boat to develop teamwork, so all sailors get the chance to improve starting techniques, sail trim, boat trim, and racing tactics.
Before each Fun Racing day, specific crew assignments for each boat will be decided by the Fun Racing Coordinator, based on the experience and skill levels of the individual skippers and crew sailing that day. Because of this, we are not able to accommodate individual requests to sail with specific people.
The first time in the season you sign up for Fun Racing, please e-mail email@example.com describing the sailing and racing experience you have.
