Sail Squadron FAQs

Can I participate in Club races?

In general, race participation is restricted to SFMYC members.  There are only two races each season which are open to non-members: the M Class Invitational, and the 36R Class Invitational.  Furthermore, racing is limited to boats of the same class for any given race, and not all types of boats have active fleets in the SFMYC.  Thus to race, you will not only have to become a member, you will also have to have the right kind of boat.  The club hosts radio control races in the following classes:  Santa Barbara, Infinity 54, ODOM, Star 45, and RX.  The club hosts freesail (i.e. no radio control) races in the following classes:  X, Classic X, M, and 36R.  See the Regatta Schedule for the season race calendar.  See Yachts We Sail for more description of the classes and manner of racing.  Racing is open to all members, regardless of skill level, and even if you come in last every time, you can still be assured of having fun!
