Tiller Club Racing

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).
When: Sunday mornings ~09:30 to rig/register before 10:15 competitors’ meeting. No race starts after 13:30 on series days, or 14:30 for trophy events. See schedule for details.
Where: CBI main dock, rain or shine.
Cost: $5 per boat to cover trophies and administrative expenses.

Getting Involved
