About the Summer Sailstice:

This is the First "race" in the Sip and Sail Thursday night series for 2023. 

The goal here is to squeeze every second of daylight out of our sailing day, so we've got a fantastic 10 nm race, as opposed to the usual 5 nm race.  Scratch start is 4 PM, with a target finish of 6 PM. Join us at the club afterwards, as the tap will be open, the grills hot and the drinks cold! 

Power boats are welcome to join us as well over the finish line!

Start Times:

For those unfamiliar with what a PHRF Chase is, in a nutshell:
  • Slower boats start First
  • "Winner" is the first to cross the finish line
  • Slower boats get to lead the way and faster boats get to chase them down
This is why each boat has an individual start time.  If you can't find yours, please email and we'll sort you out.

This one's best described as "Go through both guts, up to the far tip of long Island and back home. 

  • Start at the "Second Red Nun" and nearest mooring ball perpendicular to first mark and head towards Nut Island / West Gut
  • First Mark is the "Weymouth Fore River Channel Lighted Buoy 10" TO PORT
  • From there, cross the Hull Gut through to the "Green 1" TO PORT
  • Finish at the "Second Red Nun" TO PORT
