Crew Bank

New Introductory Crew and Crew members are encouraged to find places on mid-week racing boats. With the Crew Bank system you learn to race and/or sharpen your sailing skills. The Crew Bank helps crew members participate in mid-week races and this helps boat owners build teams that last from season to season.

PHRF Certificates

Your PHRF certificate will be renewed after April 20. If you are no longer racing your boat, you will need to notify the Sailing Office so that you will not be billed for the certificate. A renewal fee of $35 will be billed to your account. PHRF-Lake Ontario no longer mails out renewal certificates but instead they are available for printing from the PHRF Lake Ontario website, If you have purchased new sails you will need to have them measured. Please contact the club handicapper, at to make arrangements to have your sails measured.

Division Splits

Division allocations and the starting order for each race night will be posted prior to the practice starts on the official notice board, which is located in the west hallway.
