Every year the Sunfish fleet hosts a regatta on Labor Day, and the tradition continues this year!
Registration will start at 10:00 with the skippers meeting at 11:00. We will target 5 races, weather permitting. There will be one throw out if 5 races are completed. The fleet will also be split into Championship and Challenger fleets, and you can designate which fleet you want to be in at sign-up. There will be no entry fee. Please bring your own lunch.
Club members may use club boats when the safety boat is on the water.
The Rookie Regatta was not held on August 3 due to rain. So come out on Saturday, August 17 for the 2013 Rookie Regatta, the sailing race for HSC’s newest sailors.
The Rookie Regatta is a chance to get more sailing practice – and see some friends from your sailing class! The regatta is open to all new skippers, including those from the Learn-to-Sail program and we will race in Sunfish.
The event will start with the skippers’ meeting at 11:00 am where we will spend some time covering the basics of racing – how to start, sail around and finish a race without having to say you’re sorry <grin>. Racing will start about 12:30 and we’ll hold 3 to 4 races.
Bring your pfd, lunch, water bottle and sense of fun. Look forward to seeing you there!
This is a fun, group-sailing event, not a race.
Saturday, July 20th at 11 AM
Lunch on the water — bring your own food & beverages.
Bring your own life jacket.
Bring supper soakers and water blasters if it’s hot.
There are many ways you can keep sailing after your sailing class! Come out to the lake often; ask other members for help – we all love to sail and to share our experience with you! Read on below:
Here’s all the news on sailing, youth sailboat racing team, and sailing club events for July!
The Sailing Part of the Day
On Thursday, July 4th the Hunterdon Sailing Club will be sailing the LBJ (not named for the past president) for the honor of having the largest perpetual trophy in the club, the Little Brown Jug, gracing your home. All sailboat fleets race together with a staggered start based on Portsmouth ratings. This is a fun, around-the-lake race, great for all sailors & all boats!
The race committee will announce the starting sequence and timing at the skipper’s meeting. First sailboat to reach the finish line wins regardless of when she started.
The skipper’s meeting will be at 11:00 am, with the first start at noon. The course will encompass the whole lake and will last approximately 100 minutes. The race has one prize for first place and a best in fleet for those fleets represented by 3 or more boats.
The Picnic Part of the Day
About 2 PM, all sailing club members are encouraged to join us by the HSC shed for the picnic even if you didn’t sail the race. We need help though! See below for details.
