Wednesday Night Racing (WNR)

From the first Wednesday of May until mid-September every year, races

start at 18:30.

WNR is a giant social on Calgary's largest playing field.

Keelboat or dinghy... all sizes of boats are welcome on the start line each week.

Racing = Sailing with a Purpose

If you are new to racing, consider our FREE Racing School to get the basics or connect with us for a coffee to have a conversation to help make your time on the water a good one.

Calgary has a great lake for racing. Beginners are always close to shore and there are no waves or current to deal with. Experienced sailors hone their skills with the shifting / local winds.

We have multiple races each Wednesday, and the long nights near the Summer Solstice make for great racing.

Club members volunteer as Race Committee and run the racing for other members.  If you're new to racing, don't worry - we have a buddy system in place.  Experienced volunteers will be happy to show you the ropes.

After the racing each Wednesday, we all go to the sailing club for burgers, beverages and awards for the night's racing.   

Register your boat for the Wednesday Night Series.

Each week when you go out to race:

  • Sail by and hail the Race Committee letting them you know you are racing
  • Ensure your sail numbers are unique and legible
