2016

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.

Race day fees are free for club members.

Race courses may be windward-leeward with the start line either at the leeward end or in the middle of the course, modified olympic (triangle, windward, leeward)

Results

June 29, 2016 Portsmouth

We had 7 boats show up tonight for our Portsmouth racing. The winds were steady at 5 to 7 mph, and we were able to get in 3 one lap races. The honors for the evening go to Bob Swoboda in his MC Scow, with one bullet and two seconds. Matt Phillips pulled off a second place finish in the 3rd race with his C-Scow. Tom Jones won the second race with his Butterfly. So we had a nice variety of boats finishing near the front of the fleet tonight. You can see the detailed results below.

Thanks to everyone who came out to sail tonight. And have a happy Fourth of July weekend.

Well we got some wind tonight. It was 15 to 18 knots all evening long. This made for some pretty tired sailors by the end of the third race, but everyone sailed well, and there were no capsizes.

Congratulations to Joe Terry for coming up with 3 bullets in the challenging conditions. It was nice to see Tomasz Okon out there looking good in his J-Sailor as well.
