Racing with DC Sail

Notice: The start date of the season has changed to Thursday, May 24th. We'll add a race at the end of the season to cover the change. 


Announcing a new change to DC Sail's adult racing program.  

To encourage more participation, we are combining the two 6 week-long summer series into one long 16 week series.  Racing will move to Thursday nights at 6:00 pm. We hope this change will get more boats out on the line each Thursday. Registration and payment are required for participation.

No racing experience is required, however, it is encouraged that sailors have a basic knowledge of the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) and be confident in their sailing skills. 

To gain this knowledge and an insight into tactics, strategy and boat handling, sailors can take DC Sail's Intro to FJs Course that runs monthly throughout the peak season.

Please be advised that Race Series with less than 10 participants will be cancelled and any confirmed registration fees refunded.
