Racing at Shoreline

Intro to Racing

Racing is an exciting way for developing sailors to progress their skills in a fun and competitive environment.

Shoreline Lake’s “Intro to Racing” clinic provides an opportunity to learn the basic principles of sailboat racing and put those skills into practice on the water.

Completing this clinic will provide the knowledge necessary to participate in races hosted by Shoreline and the Fremont Sailing Club.

You will learn:

  • Mark rules
  • Sailing a race course
  • Race starts and signals
  • Protesting

Prospective racers are highly recommended to complete Intermediate Sailing and must be able to comfortably single-hand a dinghy in moderate to heavy wind.
