HSC Fleet Racing
We have club racing on Sundays throughout the sailing season which begins in April and ends in late October. From May through August we also race on Wednesday evenings. Sunday races begin at 1:45 pm, and Wednesday races begin at 6:50 pm using the following starting sequence:
- Windmills and non-fleet boats (a.k.a. lasers, FJ’s, 420’s, Contenders, etc.)
- Thistles, 505’s, Flying Scots, Highlanders
- MC Scows
Looking for a little extra competition? Club Racing on the third Wednesday in May, June, July and August is a pursuit race where all types of boats compete against each other.
Summer holidays mean sailing at Hoover. Our holiday series racing occurs on the major holiday weekends - Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day - and includes two days of racing followed by a social event and potluck.
During the cooler months our frostbite sailors take to the water in their lasers. You might see them sailing on a Saturday or Sunday, depending which day of the weekend has better weather. They typically sail the off-season until the pond freezes.
