Polar Bear Series

Have a boat and are new to racing? No problem – this series is a great way for beginner skippers to get out on the water and into racing.

Don’t have a boat but still want to race? Perhaps you’re a member of one of the other sections and want to try your hand at sailing? We’ll find a ride for you – Lots of boats are looking for crew and rookies are certainly welcome! Email me and I will set you up with a boat.

The first race is October 31st!

Looking for crew? Email me with how many crew you’re looking for and what sort of libation your crew should bring.
