Come sailing on the Neuse!
Our goal is to have fun on the water, enjoy sailing, and meet new people in the process. New to sailing? No problem! These “races” are easy! Your boat will be given a specific time to be at the starting line, based on the boat’s handicap relative to the other boats. Then – try to catch everyone in front of you, stay ahead of all boats behind you, all while going around a course consisting of government marks. First boat to the finish wins!

PLEASE PRE-REGISTER HERE ONLINE FOR FREE! (This is how we can determine the info about your boat and assign it a handicap – that’s how we’ll know what time you will start the race).
