Intelligent Sailing... 

The Annual Regatta is the most popular social event on the Intelligent Sailing calendar and draws members and members friends (about 50 people) from all over world. Over the years we had members flying in from KY, AZ, OH, NY as well as NM, Toronto, Germany, UK & Ireland.

The Regatta is run Easter Weekend with Easter Sunday as a back up day. Lead by Intelligent Sailing President, bringing you racing knowledge and downwind sailing equipment. With 10 regattas behind us and no crashes (avoid collision at all costs), you are always in safe hands.  Easter 2017 will be our 12th Annual Regatta!

Leading up to the event, Intelligent Sailing  runs a series of events including Midweek Evening Sails featuring different boat sizes and sails. In addition to the Midweek Evening Sails, we hold a Practice Day that launches the Regatta Weekends events. After the final race, we dock the boats at our home port, The Harborage Marina and hold a BBQ party that features the awards and prizes in a private garden party. 

The Regatta consists of three 1 - 1.5 hr races. We use our fleet of boats, lay the course out with orange markers and use a committe boat and a chase boat capturing photos of the event.

After the classroom session, we assign the teams and head out on the water. The goal of Friday Practice is to learn how to get used to being at the start line in time for the gun (a true skill) and completing a leg of the course.
