Wednesday Night Sails
Our Wednesday Night Sails will continue Every Wednesday until Daylight Savings Time ends.
We will assemble in Colington Harbour before 6:00 PM and the first boat will leave the harbour around 6:00. There is no sign-up. Just show up and sail.
These sails are open to everyone with a sailboat. You don’t have to be a CYC member to join us.
The course is from the Harbour entrance to a port turn around the 2KH marker and then on to a port rounding of the MG marker then return to a starboard rounding of the 2KH and home to the Harbour entrance.
When the lead boat rounds the MG marker, all boats will turn around and follow the course home. The “winner” is the first boat to reach the outer Harbour channel markers. Actually everyone who sails on Wednesday is a winner.
Boat-to-boat communication will be on VHF Channel 68.
Don’t Have a Boat or Just Want to Crew?
Never sailed before but would like to try? Wondered what the Wednesday night experience is like? Then go out with an experienced captain and crew. You can just sit and experience the peacefulness of sailing or help tend the lines or steer. No experience? Don’t worry. You’ll get expert instruction. The sails last 2-3 hours depending on the wind.
This opportunity is open to everyone – you don’t have to be a CYC member. If you like it, you can join the club and enjoy all of our activities.
Contact the CYC Fleet Captain at FleetCaptain@colingtonyachtclub.com in advance to arrange a pickup. Then come to the Colington Harbour Marina at 5:30 PM at the dock that has the CYC sign. A boat will come over and pick you up.
Don’t Be Late!!! The boats sail out of the Harbour promptly at 6:00PM so you must be on board before then.
Note: On some days the weather or other circumstances may not permit us to carry passengers. Please be understanding that we are concerned about your safety.
