Fleets

505

The 5O5 is a light weight, high performance boat with a powerful sail plan and one trapeze. It carries a mainsail, jib, and spinnaker.

Flying Scot

The Flying Scot holds up to eight adults, is raced with a crew of two or three, and can be single-handed. It's a comfortable, stable boat for family day sailing or racing, and carries a mainsail, jib, and spinnaker.

Highlander

The Highlander is a larger, comfortable boat that is both fast and stable, suitable for daysailing and racing. It carries a mainsail, jib, and spinnaker. 

Interlake

The Interlake is a popular choice for both racing and daysailing. Fleet 24 is the largest Interlake fleet, and its members participate actively at Hoover, as well as at regattas at other clubs. It carries a mainsail, jib, and spinnaker.

MC Scow

The MC Scow is a small, flat bottomed-boat with a single sail that can skip along the top of the water on a plane at high speeds. It is usually single-handed and offers a fast and stable ride.

Thistle

The Thistle is a high performance one-design racing sailboat that is generally sailed with a three person crew. The sail plan consists of a main, jib, and spinnaker. The boat planes easily in 10-12 knots of breeze yet will also perform well in light air.

Windmill

The Windmill is a 2-person racing dinghy with a narrow, hard-chined planing hull. Being a nontrapeze, non-spinnaker boat makes the Windmill suitable for a wide range of sailing skills.

Non-Fleet Boats

The boat must be a one-design open cockpit mono-hull of a type other than one of the active fleets at HSC. It must be less than 21 feet in length and may not have a fixed keel.

Club 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:

  1. Thistle, Flying Scot, Highlander, 505
  2. Interlake
  3. Windmill, Non-Fleet
  4. MC Scow

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.
