Racing at The DSC

Welcome to the exciting world of racing! More information about racing at Downtown Sailing can be found in PDF format HERE.  Click HERE for the TNR Official Notice Board.

If you are interested in racing, please email john@downtownsailing.org or call the office. Don't be late to the line! Sailors who sign up at the race crew level can join a J/22 Spinnaker Class racing team led by two or more racing skippers. Each race team, comprised of 6 or more members, splits the burden of sailing and running Race Committee through the season. J/22 Spinnaker Class Racing spots are available beginning in November of the previous year. Please be aware that you should join a team before paying the racing upgrade fee.

TNR Sailing Instructions 2020

The TNR program runs a second Non-Spinnaker Start for the Sonar Class boats. Available at no upgrade or series fee, any skipper can begin to hone their skills for racing.

Mission

The Thursday Night Racing (TNR) Program promotes core Downtown Sailing Center (DSC) values of diversity, camaraderie, sportsmanship, and education through the sport of sailing.

DSC Frostbiting and Friday Fun Races

Cut your racing chops through DSC Frostbiting and informal summer "Friday Fun Races." Frostbiting is typically organized by the office throughout the winter, while Friday Fun races are true pickup races where skippers and crew meet up to sail out into the summer sunset. Check out the Racing Calendar for all the frostbite and Fun Race dates.

    The TNR Die Hard series will follow the regular racing season, giving teams additional opportunities to get out on the water.  The Die Hard series will be scored, but will not count towards teams' overall season scores.

    The TNR Program is fast, fun, and competitive 'short-course racing', with most races lasting between 20 and 30 minutes. 

    Spinnakers, Windward Leeward courses, and a dinghy-style (3 minute) starting sequence make for lots of action at the starts, marks, and even finishes!

    Teams must register at the start of the season in March. Each team is comprised of at least two skippers, who share race committee duties and series responsibilities.

    For more information about the racing program, contact John via john@downtownsailing.org
