Our 2021 Race Winners are:
Welcome to the LCSA racing section! We do our thing on Thursday nights, and we are a bit different, completely nontraditional, hey our starting sequence is weird and we like it that way, horns, no flags, and maybe a random siren? But if you want to have fun and try to beat the guy in front of you with the faster boat, you are in the right place!
It was a very successful 2021 racing season for our club! I was really impressed with the willingness of our club members to help out with committee boat duty and in short "do their part". There were some very close races, and some good stories, not the least of which was when Bob Lenhart pulled Triquetra into Harbor Town to hide from a 31 kt wind storm! Looks like the Racing Chair called that one wrong, but hey it was a "pop up" storm!
1 blast of 2 to 3 seconds at 5 minutes before start.
1 short blast at 3 min
1 short blast at 1 min
1 long blast at START
The course will be one lap around the Southern mark, taking the mark to the boat's port side, then back through the start line to finish one lap. The start line will be near the lighthouse.
Members only please.
If you would like to participate on the committee boat, we'd love to welcome you aboard.
Members only please.
Crewing (assisting) racers is one of the best ways to sharpen your sailing skills! If you want to crew, just show up at Pier 4 at Seven Coves parking lot at about 4:45-5:00 Thursdays and you can hitch a ride with one of our racers! Welcome aboard. Be sure to bring your parking permit (at right)
If you are crewing on someone's boat, or serving committee boat duty, and you do not have a parking permit, you need to display this sign on your dashboard
Those that plan on racing should also plan on being available to volunteer on the committee boat at least once a month, either as driver or helper. A minimum of 2 people is required to set marks and run the races. Plus hey this is fun to float around and sound the horns (and or siren)!
Our experienced drivers are John Davis, Victor Scammel Anna Mode, Lisa Doyle, Bob Lenhart, Jim Hall, Brad Ballard, Bill Worsham, Gerrit Rickwalt, Joan Rickwalt, Josh Terry, Dick Morton, Tammi, Hewlett, and Andy Truscott, and as others help with races they will become drivers.
PLEASE sign up on the open database entitled “Committee Boat Sign-Up” panel directly above this. The committee boat drivers have the last minute authority on canceling a race due to weather conditions.
