No-Show Policy:

If you commit to race and are a no-show without prior cancellation, you will be banned from the race series.

No-shows leave sailors without teammates and take spots from others wanting to race.

In this age of cell phones there is no reason for no-shows.

If you have committed to race and must cancel, notify us by email or telephone in advance.


Friday Night Sailing & BBQ

From April-October our Sailing Club is open on Friday nights from 4-7.

This is a great night to come down and meet other club members, go for a sail, and eat some good food after.

Club members are the organizers, so if you would like to help organize join our UCSC Sailing Club Google Group.

All club members and skill levels welcome!

It would be great to get every boat off the dock, and make an armada out of the sail!

A BBQ is available, you all just need to bring coals/food/drinks!

Bring your friends to introduce them to the wonderful world of sailing!
