2014 SUMMER SERIES SCHEDULE

The Kettles Summer Sailing Series is open to all interested recreational sailors including beginners and juniors. Laser sailboats (single-handed) are the most popular, but all sailing craft are welcome including Albacores, 420s, Hobie Cats and Windsurfers. Sailing is held most Saturdays starting at 2pm (see schedule below). 

Sailing takes place in East Bay around a triangle course marked by orange buoys and a start/finish boat. The start sequence is a standard 5 minute timed countdown. Each race consists of one lap around the triangle course followed by a 2nd windward leg and then a downwind leg to the finish / start line.

Two to three back to back races are typically held depending on winds. Check in on the water with the start boat. Sailors are free to opt in and out of races as desired. Lifejackets are recommended.

An apres sailing social for all sailors and friends is hosted at sailor’s cottage following racing (approx 4-6pm – see schedule below).

Awards for top three sailors in July and August as well as season overall. Separate awards for the top three junior (18 & under) sailors.
