Fun Races

Thursday Night Fun Races

Thursday night racing is racing for fun, camaraderie, and learning. It is a joint effort with SBJSA to involve more sailors in the sport of racing. To this end, guests from the nearby marinas on Sodus Bay are invited to race with us and join us at the club afterwards for food, drinks, and conversation.

Boats on the Fun Race course will race white sail (genoa only/no spinnakers). There will be no official scoring and prizes will be for fun.

New to racing? No worries, there will be a 15 minute instructional before the racing begins. We look forward to welcoming you to SBYC and the sport of racing.
