With a history steeped in competitive racing on Lake Ontario, National Yacht Club offers a comprehensive, three night midweek racing program for all skill levels.
Tuesday - PHRF Whitesail, Quarter Ton and Shark.
Wednesday - PHRF Spinnaker Racing.
Thursday - Women’s, Double-Handed and Beginner Skippers.

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. Find out more!

Skipper Information


Registration
One design or handicap racing - Once a week or multiple nights. We have lots of options! Skippers who are interested in registering their boat for Mid-Week Racing or Round-the-Island Races please visit our registration page. Participants from other clubs are welcome! Visit our registration page.

PHRF Certificates
All boat owners participating in the NYC Midweek Racing program must have a valid PHRF certificate or one-design measurement certificate for their boat. If you are new to PHRF or have purchased new sails you will need to have them measured. Please contact the club handicapper, at phrf@thenyc.com to make arrangements to have your sails measured. An annual fee of $50 + HST will be billed to your account at the end of March. 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. PHRF-Lake Ontario no longer mails out renewal certificates, instead they are available for printing from the PHRF Lake Ontario website, www.phrf-lo.org
