Tiller Club is a community of CBI sailors with the goal to promote racing at all levels.

What: We run seasonal racing series, trophy regattas, single-handed events, and races in keelboats and dinghies, in boats provided by CBI.
Who: Skippers with knowledge of the Racing Rules of Sailing and the Tiller Club Sailing Instructions. Novice and experienced crews welcome. Come with a teammate, or connect with one at CBI (two sailors per boat unless specified). We ask regular skippers to get their Racing Skipper rating by taking a brief online test on the racing rules. Email [email protected]com to request the test.
When: Sunday mornings. Rigging and registration 9:45-10:10am, skipper’s meeting 10:15, first race starts at 11am (you should be on the racing course at that time). Series days: no race starts after 1pm; no lunch break, no boat rotation. Regatta days: no race starts after 2:30; short break for lunch and boat rotation. See schedule for details.
Cost: $5 per boat to cover trophies and administrative expenses.

Jib 2 teaches the finer points of advanced boathandling and crew coordination. In this class, you will learn to sail without a rudder! Rudderless sailing, while not required for the red test, gives a sailor a deeper understanding of the forces at work when a boat is under sail. This class is focused specifically on sailing a boat using only the sails and your own weight; no rudder required. You’ll learn how sail trim and heel affect how a boat moves, so that you can make your turns better, tacks smoother, and gybes safer. Any sailor who has taken Jib 1, and wants to greatly increase their sailing knowledge, should take this class.
