Sailing at the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor

Sailboats and sailboat racing date back to the founding of YCSH in the 1920’s. Today, our fleet racing is open to all members and we are happy to accommodate separate race starts and scoring for any one-design fleet of three or more boats. Youth sailors as well as adult sailors are welcome. We generally race every Saturday in the summer and our race course is in “the flats” right across from the Yacht Club. The Flying Scot has become the primary adult race boat in recent years replacing the Comets, Cheetah Cats and Sunfish. Because we have tidal waters, the schedule will vary from week to week so please see our race schedule.

Flying Scot Fleet

Our Flying Scot fleet was chartered in 2005 and we are now up to 15 boats at YCSH with two of them being club boats available for use by prospective Scot owners and club members. Our fleet members enjoy both cruising the local waters and racing “around the marks” on Saturday afternoons. These races are also open to experienced sailors (members) who wish to use the club boats to try out a Flying Scot. Arrangements can be made by contacting the Club Office and our fleet captain, Linda Nicholson. Also contact Linda if you would like to have your name on the sailing email list and/or the substitute crewing list for Saturdays in the summer.

YCSH is the host for several open regattas every summer. See our sailing schedule for upcoming events and watch for special announcements in the club Blinker.
