Thursday Night Summer Sailboat Racing Series

Sailing is best when you go frequently. Every Thursday evening from May through October we get together and have fun, informal races. The first start is at 6:00 and we finish at sundown. We get five races in, then enjoy the sunset and relaxation time.

2022 Thursday Night Summer Sailboat Racing Series

One-Design Series Championship Regatta

Every month from May to September we have races between boats of the same classes: One-Design. It’s boat-on-boat with the difference being the sailors, not whether you have a faster boat than the other guy. It’s a true test of skill and tactical decision-making. For those with boats that don’t fit into a single fleet, we have an Open Division, so everyone can race. The series lasts all summer, so we have race winners as well as series winners. If you show up, you can win the whole thing!

Capitol Cup Windsurfing Regatta

Lake Washington Sailing Club hosts its annual Capitol Cup Longboard Windsurfing Regatta in June.   Bring your Windsurfer LT, Mistral Equipe, or whatever you have.   Sailors can expect afternoon delta breezes around 10-12 knots with an occasional 20-knot day.  Refreshments and food are available in the after-race social. 

Delta Dinghy Ditch

Thirty miles in a dinghy; what are you crazy? This is a unique event in dinghy sailing. We start in Rio Vista and end at the clubhouse in West Sacramento. The starts are timed so all the boats reach Lake Washington at about the same time. Anyone can win! And, we party to music and great food at the end of the trip! This is our most technical event, requiring coordination of the participants, movement of trailers and boat dollies, transiting the bridge crossing in Rio Vista, and starting each class of boats at the right time according to each class’s handicap.  Make sure to carefully read the NOR and Sailing Instructions.

This is the only long distance, downwind dinghy race in the whole USA!
Celebrating its eighteenth year in 2021.

Turkey Shoot

Our annual Turkey Shoot Regatta is held in November, just before Thanksgiving. The winds are usually moderate to light, and the weather is usually beautiful. This is a classic buoy regatta with five races in one day. We follow a great day of sailing with a turkey chili dinner. What’s great about this event are the prizes: A turkey for first place; a chicken for second; and a game hen (or turkey hot dogs) for third in each class!
