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. Contact [email protected] 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.
Come down on race day with your teammate. Arrive by 9:45am, rig your boat and register before the 10:15am Skippers Meeting. Racing starts promptly at 11am.
