Corsair Nationals - the order of play

Here is the order of play for the Corsair Nationals hosted by the Sarasota Sailing Squadron.  Thanks to beer sponsorships from Corsair dealer Windcraft Boats, Calvert Sails, and the hosting Corsair dealer, Finish Line of the Treasure Coast this event won't lack for refreshment (after the racing of course).  Live music, auctions, prize draws, and dinners mean this will be a fun filled event!  Remember that the whole family is welcome, and with 26 boats already registered, you're sure to make new friends.  Sailors of all skill levels are welcome.  

The 2017 Corsair Nationals Hosted by Sarasota Sailing Squadron:

  • Thursday January 26:  

    • Randy Smyth Speed Clinic – Pre-booking required (just $20 - note it in your registration), and valuable for any level of racer.   Randy will coach you through boat preparation, tactics, starting and all aspects of racing your trimaran.  Instruction will be both classroom style and on the water.

    • 8-9:30 – Registration

    • 10:00 – Competitors meeting

    • 11:30 – First Start.  The racing area is just 2-3 miles from the club, so it is easy to get out and get ready to race.  We are hoping to get in 14 races over the three days, so weather permitting, we will stay on the water until around 16:00

    • After Racing – Free beer at the club!
