Aug 25 – SSCA sailing race at 10:30am (with Sunday raindate)

In what we hope will become a regular event, we are organizing a sailing race Saturday morning, open to all. Any type of boat can be entered.
This is meant to be informal, fun, a way to gauge interest for future races, and to try out a super-simple race format.
Please come out and be a part of Sans Souci sailing history!
If you know someone else who might be interested, please let them know.



Saturday August 25 10:30 am- 12:00 noon.

If there is bad weather, we will postpone to 10:30am Sunday August 26.

We will post our go/no-go decision on the SSCA Facebook page by 8:30 am on race day and send an email to all participants.



The starting line will be just north of Frying Pan Island, at the green channel marker (C181).

We will be setting buoys to mark a triangular course. The course direction is counter-clockwise.

Thanks – we hope you can join us.

Where does the race start and end?

The starting line (which is also the finish line) is between green channel navigation marker C181 (the first one north of Frying Pan Island) and the committee boat (Stuart Hatcher’s Limestone – will be anchored near the marker).   You sail north across the line, around the two marker buoys on the outside (I.e. pass them to starboard), then back to cross the line again.


How do I know when to start?

You can cross the line when you hear a single whistle and the last flag drops:


Who has right of way?

If you are “P-O-W”, yield to the other boat:
