Team Race Series

Team racing is not just for college and high school sailors. Whether you graduated last year or 30 years ago, join the HYC team!

 

Hampton Yacht Club offers Team Racing to any HYC member on our fleet of Sonars. There is no Team Race experience needed! Just come on out and learn from Gary Bodie and Arielle Darrow. During our Thursdays, we run drills and practice races to help prepare the sailors for regattas with other yacht clubs throughout the year. We try to schedule our Team Racing Thursdays before Women’s Sailing Fridays so members do not have to hoist out the Sonars at the end of the day.

The Team Race Series starts in April and continues on until the end of September on various Thursdays from 5:15pm to sunset. Once everyone gets off the water, they head to the club for a debrief of the evening, pizza and refreshments. In order to sign up, please click on a date below and sign up for a boat. Remember it does not matter which boat or crew you sign up for…it will all be determined the day of.
