Time: Thursday March 23rd @ 6:30 PM
Location: Huguenot Yacht Club - New Rochelle, NY
The Can One Evening Race Association is inviting sailors who are interested in joining their Thursday night racing series to a meeting and dinner for those who are interested. On March 23th Can One is holding a prospective members dinner and meeting at Huguenot Yacht Club. At this meeting you can learn about their racing series, how the races are run, how the starting sequence is run, how to read the course signals, how to prepare your boat, common race course strategies and much more. There will be free beer from 6:30 to 7 pm, a buffet dinner for $25 per person starting at 7:00 pm and the presentation will start when dinner is finished about 7:45.
The Can One series is open to anyone with a boat that has a PHRF rating certificate. There are classes for those racing without spinnakers and classes for boats sailing with spinnakers. There are even one-design classes for J/105s and J/88s. They sail every Thursday from May 11th to Sept. 7th.
Racing can be as laid back or as competitive as you want. Some race to hone their crews for major events, while others only race on Thursdays. Some just come out to be with friends and watch the sun set over NYC. No matter how seriously you take the racing, sailing in close quarters improves your boat handling and increases your confidence on the water.
So come find out more, drink our beer and meet new people.
