A growing group of NYC sailors and volunteers have been learning the match racing game on Monday nights as part of the NYC Match Racing Club. Each Monday match racing enthusiasts participate in several practise starts and races. Match racing starts are 6 minutes in length and the races usually only last 10-15 minutes, so quite a few races are started every Monday. Match Racing Club attendance has been strong, and due to the fast paced nature of the sport, we have successfully been able to rotate everyone through the boats.
The NYC Match Racing Club is available to all NYC members, so feel free to come out and join us. Match racing currently takes place on a pair of Lightnings (and occasionally J22’s) which have been loaned to the Match Racing Club by generous members.
If you would like to learn more about match racing come out and join us on Monday nights. We meet by the white crane around 6:00pm. We are also interested in attracting race committee and umpire volunteers who want to learn more about match racing.
So if you would like to learn more about either of those please come join us. For more information please contact
