Dear Sailors,

 

An invitation to join the fun of racing sailboats.

 

The officers of Scituate Sailing welcome all of our members and visitors back for the 2018 racing program. If you are a new racer, we are here to help you make the most of your experience with help finding crew or information on the race course, local rules and shoreside activities.

 

Scituate Sailing will again have several races open to all members and visiting yachtsmen in good standing. This includes Wednesday night spring and summer series, a fall weekend series and several special regattas, including our Mass Bay qualifying Scituate Invitational. PHRF races run from May to October with boats grouped into classes according to their speed potential, as calculated by the boat’s official Performance Handicap Racing Fleet (PHRF) rating. In each race and series the boats in each class with the best corrected times win.

 

For many years, Scituate Sailing has been about competition, sportsmanship and participation. All skippers and crew are encouraged to become members by filling out an application and paying the required fees, which we put to good use running the races and related activities. Any boat with an assigned PHRF rating may compete for trophies in any and all of our series as well as PHRF events held away from Scituate.

 

We are looking forward to yet another great sailing season in 2018. Please feel free to contact any of our officers with your questions and suggestions. See you on the starting line.

 

Sincerely,

        

​Mark D'Onofrio

Fleet Governor
