China Light Program

China Light is an educational component which teaches sailing for women, juniors and novice sailors. We do this on the water and in the classroom. We emphasize safety, technique and how to have fun while learning the sport of sailing.

The China Light Program also organizes racing every Tuesday night for 15 weeks over the summer.

The Program features a variety of fleets with specific requirements as regards helmsperson and crew.  

The centerpiece of the Program are spinnaker and main & jib fleets that require a majority female crew with a woman helmsperson.

J/22 One Design Racing takes place as part of the China Light Program. The Buffalo fleet has over 10 boats on the line every Tuesday night.

The Program also features a junior racing series that allows younger sailors to gain big-boat experience in racing conditions. The helmsman and a majority of the crew must be under 18 years of age as of July 1. 

Finally, the Program has a main and jib fleet titled RCR JAM. This fleet is for sailors, both experienced and new, that want to learn more about their boats and experience racing condition. An award for first place is provided by RCR Yachts at the annual BHSC awards banquet.

In addition to the racing, there are informal social events during the racing season.
