Thursday Night Racing
All Fleet Racing
Thursday Evenings in June, July and August
Thursday Night Racing was started by a few members who taught adult sailing at the club. They recognized that students had learned enough to skipper their own boat and fall in love with the sport, but may be too inexperienced or intimidated to compete on Sundays. They felt that a natural follow up to lessons would be to create a low stress - high fun evening of sailing with a casual racing format.
As a result, Thursday night instruction morphed into a weekly, low-stress series designed to get people out on the water, fine tune their skills and hopefully learn a few new ones. The Thursday Night Series was born and has been wildly popular since.
This is an opportunity for all sailors to gain confidence and experience as they sail alongside the more experienced skippers, many of whom have been at the helm most of their lives. Of course, if you would rather just go for a sail with your family and friends, you are encouraged to join in with the comfort of knowing others are on the water to assist if necessary.
Enjoy racing and magnificent Shrewsbury River sunsets followed by post-racing festivities on the deck. Thursday Night Racing is a great way to kick off your summer weekends.
