The Keel Boat Racing Squadron (KBRS) maintains a yearly schedule of races, and regattas. Our racing program provides a means for sailors to sharpen their sailing skills, enjoy a competitive environment while sailing and to build camaraderie between the club members. After each race there is usually a gathering where racers can discuss the wind shifts, and winning/losing strategies.
The racing schedule includes two different series – spring & summer. The races typically take place on Wednesday evenings during the summer, but move to Saturday afternoons when the days get shorter in the late fall. Racing usually begins in April, and lasts until October. KBRS also hosts several open regattas: Whitecap Regatta in July, and the C.O.R.N. Regatta in August/September.
The weekly races are comprised of boats of many different models, and the sailors are of all levels of ability. There are different classes for different types of boats, keel, multi-hulls, and centerboard. The races include a cruising fleet (For those individuals that enjoy the more leisurely version of sailing), and the racing fleet.
All boats are welcome. If you need some help getting started, we can find an experienced KBRS racer to ride with you to familiarize you with our easy racing. Or if you would like to ride in a race, many skippers are glad to have extra hands onboard.
