Racing/Sail Fleet

If you like sailboat racing, you’ll love Southwestern Yacht Club! Our racing activities vary from the wacky to competing on the national level.


For Members

  • First there is the Racing Fleet, where friends and  family can enjoy racing at its best!  All you need to do is join and start racing. The Racing Fleet takes care of assigning you a handicap based on your skill level.
  • If you want even more excitement, the PHRF racing scene is for you. Here you will compete against yachts from all over the area in events as varied as 60+ mile ocean races to fierce windward leeward buoy racing.
  • And, if that is not enough, then there is our Competition Committee. You can get hooked up with some national events to compete against the best.

For Non-Members

  • Sign up to compete in one of many sailboat races.  We are nationally recognized for our excellent race management skills so you are sure to enjoy a well-run competitive race.
  • Volunteer as crew. Racers are always looking for crew and the better you are, the more sought after you’ll be.  Crewing is the best way to sharpen your sailing skills.
  • Get involved with Race Management. Race Management organizes and executes the races from the starts to finishes, from protests to the scoring, and always needs volunteers to ensure races run smoothly.
