Sailboat Racing School (free course - schedule based upon demand)

We are going to demystify sailboat racing through this two-hour overview course.

This course is for everyone who is curious or ready to jump into sailboat racing.

This is a free course?
Yes! It's Free!

You'll learn from our volunteer faculty who have years, and in most cases decades, of sailing experience.

The scope of the content covered includes:

  • Pre-start
  • Race Committee (flags and sounds)
  • The Start
  • Sailing Upwind
  • Sailing Downwind
  • Mark Roundings
  • The Finish
  • Protests

Local racing is competitive yet friendly... we all go to the Club after sailing for a beverage, a burger and enjoy a social evening.

The Glenmore Sailing Club Racing School sets you up to come crew with us (free to sign up) on a sailboat in our Wednesday Night Series or in a weekend regatta. For people with their own boat wanting to join the racing, you will get a lot out of this.

Racing is one of the best ways to practice and hone sailing skills. You use the same skills when racing you would use cruising around the Gulf Islands or sailing on the lake at your cabin.

Upcoming events

Not yet scheduled. Please check back soon.

The  Glenmore Sailing Racing School's Volunteer Faculty are committed to helping you get started and excel when racing sailboats. 

I'm interested in a future Racing School
 (if there isn't one in the Upcoming Events section above on this page or the date does not work for you)

What options do I have after Racing School?

  • Join the Crew list and use your new sailing skills on racing keelboats and dinghies.
  • Come out to a social event... get to know other sailors. These are the skippers and crew on boats you might crew on.
  • Come out after the racing on a Wednesday evening social for a burger and a beverage (even if you didn't sail that evening). Sunsets on the deck are great.
  • Take a sailing lesson with us
