Small boats. Right parts. Fine service. Since 1968.
Racing will keep you interested your whole life; there are so many levels. You can race one-design or in a mixed fleet that use a handicap system, like Portsmouth Yardstick. Good news: you don't have to know much to begin.
There are other free publications that will help you too, like racing basics. And there's books about racing, from entry level to advanced, available at libraries and our shop. It's not just about boat speed: sail trimming, rig tuning..., it's also about learning about wind, how to spot gusts and shifts by looking at the water, the lake. You're going to have so much fun!
