2/15/18 - A reminder that the Introduction to Racing Series (7 races) is being held again on Tuesday nights this year.  First race is Tuesday May 8. There is no fee for this series...although a modest donation would be greatly appreciated to cover the cost of the chase and committee boats plus driver for the chase boat.  To those of you in the Shoreline Sailing Club...if you know anyone with a boat in the Pilot's Point yards (especially the South yard) would you let them know about this. We plan to have Todd Berman do his Learn How to Race Sailboats presentation on a date to be determined at the DIYC clubhouse. Hope you will come to that. You can register online by clicking Event Registration in the upper left column once it's initialized for the year. We had a wonderful time with this last year! See 2/1/18 entry below for more detail.

2/1/18- An Introduction to Racing Series Continues in 2018

The Duck Island Yacht Club in cooperation with Harry's Marina and Pilots Point Marina invites day sailors, cruisers and novice racers into our racing program by offering a start for non-spinnaker boats after the Shirley Hall fleet starts on Tuesday nights. The racing will be free for most entrants and we will offer a clinic prior to the first start for anyone interested in racing. This is a really nice opportunity for some novice sailboat owners who are interested in racing, but have felt intimidated at the idea, and/or for people who have raced before, but not for a long time and need to get their confidence back. See Notice of Race (when posted). You can register online by taking the link in the NOR. For further information contact  race.chairman at diyc dot com.

We're on  facebook  so check us there as well.
