Racing and Regattas

Want to get more involved in Shoreline’s watersports scene? There’s no better way than through racing and our variety of clubs!

Shoreline offers competition in both sailing and windsurfing. Whether you took all the classes and are eager to continue learning, raced years ago and want to get back into it, or are a veteran competitor, you will enjoy Shoreline’s fun, no-pressure atmosphere and family orientation.

The sailing series is offered for both Lasers (bring your own boat) and Capri 14.2’s (rentals available). The windsurfing series is open – any equipment acceptable.

Shoreline is also home to a Kayak Polo Club, the Ho'oku'i Outrigger Canoe Club, and High School Sailing Club.

Sailing Racing Club

One design fleet/team/match racing with tips and tricks. It’s a great opportunity to have fun sailing, improve technique and meet other sailors who want some friendly competition.

Open to all qualified sailors (more than 8 hours on the water, ability to rent, and passing a brief quiz), with experience racing on boats larger than 16 feet.

This club is $40 per team. We recommend having a team of two people (skipper and one crew person) for racing.

For scheduling and updates, join our email and Yahoo groups.

Laser Racing

With the longer days, you can also find some energetic Olympic Class Laser racing at Shoreline, on Wednesday evenings, from 6:00-8:00.

Meet up with other experienced sailors, in this BYOB (Bring Your Own Boat) event, for some fast-paced, and friendly competition.

If you don't have your own laser, Shoreline has one available, exclusively for racing participants. The special rate for this self-rig rental is $60. To be able to rent you must have experience racing lasers, and have earned your Laser Rental Card.

For scheduling, updates, and/or to rent a laser, please contact the Boathouse (650-965-7474 or

If you would like to rent a laser outside of race days, you can do so via the Book Rentals page, at the regular rate.

Ho'oku'i Outrigger Canoe Club

If your New Year’s resolution is to try something new, Shoreline is also home base for an outrigger canoe club (Ho’oku’i – Hawaiian for “to join together”).

Drop by to check out the practices and give it a go in a canoe. All skill levels and ages are welcome – the Club provides a short “how-to” that even novices can then apply on the water.

  • Practice times are:
  • Tuesday & Thursday, 5:30pm-7:30pm
  • Saturdays, 8:30am-11:30am

Not sure about joining? Check out the free Outrigger Community Days here at Shoreline. These are great opportunities for the public to meet the Club members, learn the cultural history of the sport, receive novice instruction, and try paddling in an outrigger. As always, Club membership is open to those who would like to join.

  • 2020 Community Days (all held from 10:00am - 1:00pm)
  • February 22nd
  • March 21st
