Club Racing takes place every Sunday morning throughout the year along side a Spring to Summer Wednesday Evening Series.
We run two races in a mixture of fleets (Laser, Laser Radial and RS400s) and handicaps (Fast Handicap, Slow Handicap and Fast Windward Leeward). The first start of the first race is no earlier than 10.30 and each race lasts between 40 minutes and an hour.
The Sunday morning racing calendar is split into seasons: Frostbite, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter with prizes available for each season.
Between April and September we run a Wednesday evening series where the format is based on an average handicap format with everyone going off the same start line. People stay for supper afterwards and we have a mid-season BBQ on the middle Wednesday of the series (date tbc).
The Club Championships will be held as part of our 'Bart's Bash' weekend of sailing events in September 2021. The format this will take will be publicised nearer the date.
We have a good mix of Open Meetings hosted at QMSC throughout the year.
