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 racing on Monday nights during the late spring and summer. Any type of sailboat can participate and no scores are recorded. There is no fee to race, although SSP does suggest a $5 contribution.
Participants that wish to rent SSP boats will have to do so through an online reservation process in 2021, and we will build out our Monday Open Boating (OB) sessions to best cater to Monday night racers. Open Boating staff will place a mark at ~5:00p. Rigging begins around 5:30pm and the first start is close to 6pm. On Mondays’ OB will run until 730p through May 24th, and then move to 830p from May 31st through Aug 30th. The mark will be pulled and all SSP boats must be derigged and checked in by closing time.
Due to COVID, we will not be formally gathering onshore at SSP afterwards, but we encourage folks to patronize the brewery for after racing food/drinks. We may return to after race BBQs later in the fall or in the 2022 season. Looking forward to having the MNR crew out sailing again soon!
