2011

Why Race?
Racing allows all sailors to hone their skills and become better sailors. While there is a competitive aspect that can be very exciting, club racing on DuBay is fun, social, and is the best way to learn to make your boat do and go where you want. Have no reservations, Join us!

Racing
Lake DuBay introduced a one-design Butterfly and Lightning fleet in 2009. Club racing also consists of a handicapped fleet using the Portsmouth rating system. The boats generally racing are scows of all types, day sailors, and daggerboard boats. This system allows anyone to participate in club racing and to be competitive.

Events
Racing takes place on Tuesday evenings (Portsmouth), Wednesday evenings (One-Design) and Saturdays (Portsmouth) as listed on the club calendar.

Tuesday and Wednesday evening races will be short races, generally lasting around 20 to 30 minutes each. Three races are generally sailed.

Saturday races will be a bit longer in length. This allows the cruising boats, spinnaker equipped boats, and catamarans to "stretch their legs" a bit. Two or three races will generally be sailed with races lasting around 45 minutes each.

Race day fees are $5.00 for club members, $10.00 for non-members.

Race courses are windward-leeward with the start line either at the leeward end or in the middle of the course.
