Race Nights at SSP

Sailors looking to hone their skills, make new friends, or just enjoy an evening on the water are invited to participate in Sail Sand Point’s casual summer racing series. No reservations are necessary for race nights and sailors are welcome to drop in any week during the summer to participate.


Mixed Fleet Monday Night Racing

Sail Sand Point hosts informal Mixed Fleet racing on Monday nights at 530pm during the late spring through summer (May 7th to September), and Sunday afternoons at 3pm during the spring (April to May 7th, and Sept 4th to Oct 23rd, 2023, **NOTE for 2023- there is NO Mixed Fleet race on Sept 10th due to Octoberfest onsite). Any type of sailboat can participate and no scores are recorded. Following the racing there is often a BBQ where racers provide sides and SSP provides burgers and hot dogs. There is no fee to race, although SSP does suggest a $5 contribution, especially for those eating off the grill.

Participants that wish to rent SSP boats will have to do so through an online reservation process, and we will build out our Open Boating (OB) sessions to best cater to racers. On Mondays during the summer Open Boating staff will place a mark at ~5:00pm. Rigging begins around 5:30pm and the first start is close to 6pm. On Mondays’ OB will run until 7:30pm through May 24th, and then move to 8:30pm from May 31st through Aug 30th. The mark will be pulled and all SSP boats must be derigged and checked in by closing time.
