Racing


Welcome to the exciting world of racing! The Downtown Sailing Center (DSC) has a fleet of J/22s that race on Thursday evenings in the Inner Harbor. The evening usually consists of three-four races of four legs around a short windward/leeward course. This is true one-design racing, with teams rotating boats and sails provided by the DSC.

Sailors who sign up at the race crew level can join a racing team led by two racing skippers. Each race team splits the burden of sailing through the season so you can spend some time with friends and family during racing season! Each team is responsible for setting its own team member rotation, but all members will have equal opportunities to race during the season. Racing spots are available beginning in January each year. Please be aware that you should join a team before paying the racing upgrade fee.

DSC Frostbiting and Friday Fun Races

If you are interested in racing, please email john@downtownsailing.org, or call the office. The race council helps to organize teams over the winter, so don't be late to the line! Spots do occasionally open up during the summer, however, so if you are new to the area or are just finding the time now, don't hesitate to contact us. We cannot guarantee you'll get on a team but we'll see what we can do. 

Come and join fellow DSC skippers and crew for frostbite racing during the winter or join in the Friday Fun Races this summer. It is a fun-filled relaxed atmosphere that gives you an opportunity to learn the basics. Check out the Racing Calendar for all the 2017 frostbiting dates and visit the rec sailing calendar for the Friday Fun Race dates.
