Join the BHSC Learn to Race program
Every week from May until September,
the Buffalo Harbor Sailing Club runs sailboat races on Lake Erie
with over 70 boats participating.
Challenging – Exhilarating – Rewarding – Competitive
This program for boat owners will run Tuesday evenings July 17th,24th and 31st from 6:00-8:30
Using your boat, a BHSC mentor that’s an experienced racer will sail with you and help you learn the rules so you can join the fun.
The mentors will help you understand how the course is laid out, how the starts are run and share some tricks about the rules of the road. You will be immersed in the competitive world of racing as you learn about tactics, boat speed and crew management.
A 2 hour race orientation will precede the sessions on July 9th at 6:00pm.
