SLTWYC - South Lake Tahoe Windjammers Yacht Club

Racing

Hello racers and club members!
 
The next upcoming event on July 19th is going to be the Southern Crossing Race.
This race will be a long distance race covering the majority of the lake spanning to Cave Rock and Meeks Bay.

The SLTWYC held its pursuit style World and Intergalactic Beer Can race on July 8, 2020. 
Due to Covid precautions, no signal boat was used.  Racers started in an orderly fashion using GPS time. 
Conditions were perfect South Shore Tahoe: flat water with 10-15 mph wind from SW, temps in the high 70's.

Hello Racers,
Our upcoming event is Sunday July 5. Funnette Isle Race is the title.
However, we will not be racing into the famous and crowded Emerald Bay on the most crowded afternoon of the season. I will pick some kind of medium distance course.

Fellow Racers,
 
Starting this Wednesday, 6/17/20, two starts.  Slow boats first start, fast boats second start.  Use gps time: 1805 first start, 1810 second start.

The Crew List

How does the crew list work?

You start by filling out the crew list form. The form contains your contact information, your preferences in sailing and any qualifications that you may have. By the way, we encourage beginners to submit their names to the crew list. Many skippers prefer training someone new rather than trying to get rid of "bad" habits of "experienced" crew. We also encourage skippers to try out new crew members. Like most sports we like to get new people involved. The skippers meetings take place day of the race at our Club House. This may present a potential crew member with the opportunity to get on a boat.

The Racing Crew List

When filling out your experience try not to oversell yourself because it will be come apparent soon after you start what your real qualifications are. This is the most active crew list and it can get you on a boat quickly. We encourage novices to post. You would be surprised how many skippers would prefer an enthusiastic novice over someone with experience.

The Cruising Crew List

If you are looking to sail and meet some new friends, this is the list for you. Experience is less important than for racing and it's a good way to get your feet wet, so to speak. When a skipper contacts you to go sailing, it's a good idea to ask him about his experience. You don't want to go out as a novice with a novice skipper. Skippers appreciate it if you volunteer to bring food or drink along for the sail.
