Sloop Tavern Yacht Club is excited to announce our 4th Annual Women at the Helm Race Series. The first in the series is Women at the Helm: Going the Distance, a typical buoy race with the goal of sending racers on a long course to maximize sailing time and fun! This year, after some feedback from 2022; we have allowed ourselves some flexibility in the NoR if wind conditions change on the day of the race, so be sure to check the course at the committee boat that morning.
What makes Women at the Helm different than our other races? This series specifically requires a female-identifying person to helm through the whole race. This doesn't mean only one person can helm; in fact, we encourage crews with several women to rotate through who is at the helm!
Please join us on the marina plaza after the race for awards and a special free raffle sponsored by our local West Marine! All crew members that race will get one ticket and additional tickets will be given to those who helmed, if your whole crew is women, if it's your first time helming a race, if it's your first time racing, and if it's your first time on a sailboat! Please check back here closer to race day for the start time of the award ceremony.
Race entry is free for STYC members and $35 for non-members.
