Hello KeelBoat Club!
Check out Our New Single Race Option Below.
*Prerequisites include any of the following: Our Two Day Beyond Basic, OR Two Day Racing Class, OR 5 Day Complete Sailor OR Previous Racing Experience on the Tartan 245 during the 2022 Season.
Every Wednesday, from April 26th to August 30th, the Annapolis Yacht Club hosts racing from 6pm to ~ 7:30pm. We are entering our Caraluna 245s by Tartan in the Handicap Fleet. Dock time is 4:30 pm so we can get an hour and a half of practice in before our start. The summer is split into 3 series of six races each: April 26 – May 31st, June 7th – July 19th, and July 26th – August 31st.

This a racing class. You will learn handling of an asymmetric spinnaker, race tactics, working as a team, and advanced sail trim as we compete against other boats from the Annapolis area in the ORC fleet. This will be at least 3 hours on the water each night. It is both educational and a ton of fun.
I would like to get a commitment for a six race series from a core group I can keep together. I understand life happens. I will open up the booking to people who would like to go on a single race the week before to replace people who have to go to weddings, vacations and other absences.
Cancelation policy: If we get out there, practice, start and then the wind dies and AYC cancels the race. That’s sailboat racing, sorry no refunds. Same thing if a halyard goes up the rig or we rip the spinnaker in practice. We will have races cancelled. I try to let everyone know as soon as I do. AYC sometimes waits until almost 6 to make that call. You will be able to carry that credit forward, which is why there is no 18-race option.
