Racing

QYC is a racing club with mixed fleet (handicap racing) on Wednesdays, One Design racing on Sundays, and occasional regattas, starting in May continuing through October. The racing is competitive, but fun with lots of room for beginners to learn and experienced racers to sharpen their skills. Our racing skippers range in age from 15 to 80 plus, and include woman and men.

QYC sanctioned fleets are the Laser, Daysailer, Flying Scot, Cape Cod Mercury, and 420s with a small fleet of mixed types. See fleet listings for more information. Our fleets are relatively inexpensive and usually race “one-design.” QYC also supports local board sailors by sponsoring board races on Wednesday evenings during the summer months. Power boats owned by QYC provide a platform for running sailing activities and for “rescue” should you capsize.

The club owns Lasers, Cape Cod Mercurys, Daysailers, 420s, and a Flying Scot  for use by qualified members. In addition, Optimist dinghies are available for qualified children sailors.
