Due to COVID-19 not all race series will be held during the 2021 season. The usual scheduled time of some series may be modified to adjust for the late start to the boating season.
Club races are held Wednesday evenings from May to October, with four race series:
The opening series consists of a minimum of 5 races in May and June. Sailors compete in two class fleets for the Daffodil Trophy (Spinnaker) and the Greenleaf Trophy (White Sale).
The second series consists of at least 7 races held in June and July. The trophies awarded to the sailors with the best overall results in the two fleets are the Ye Olde Seal for the Spinnaker class and the Baby Seal for the White Sail class
There are a minimum of 5 races required for the series, sailed in August and September. The Allegro Trophy is presented to the winner of the Spinnaker Class fleet while the Bittersweet Trophy goes to the winner of the White Sail Class fleet.
The final Wednesday night series has 3 races held at the end of September and early October. The single fleet (White Sail Class) vie for the Frostbite plaque.
In addition to the Wednesday night races, the club hosts a number of interclub and intraclub events as follows:
A race of friendly rivalry and spirited conviviality. It is held on the long weekend in May, the club welcomes participants from the Bay of Quinte and Pres'quile Yacht Clubs.
As the name indicates, the keelboats are raced by skippers without crew. The race is usually held towards the end of June.
This "race" consists of two events, a navigation exercise and a sailboat race, with points awarded for each event based on placement. Each crew includes a power and a sail skipper. The crew with the most point wins the Harmony Trophy. It is held in July.
A staggered start to this race, based on the boats PHRF rating, means that the boats place in the order they cross the finsh line. Look for this race in August.
Held in early September, the club regatta consists of a minimum of 5 races held over a weekend. The Vice Commodore Trophy is given to the White Sail class winner, while the Kiwi Trophy goes to the winner of flying headsails.
