Documents and Registration on Regatta Network open soon

The 2018 Hare and Hound races will build on the success of last year. It is open to all classes of boats and we encourage you to take friends and family out for a structured sail around the lake for an afternoon of racing with the emphasis on fun. After the race, come back to the pavilion for the results, BBQ (bring your own item to grill and a side to share), free beverages and live music. The starts will be based on your PHRF number. The slowest boats start first, eliminating a crowded starting line. Scoring will be simple because a yacht's finishing position will depend solely on when she crosses the finish line in relation to the other competitors. The race course will remain the same for the entire 2018 season.

After the race, come back to the pavilion for the results and free beverages. Plan to make a day of it by grilling out. How about an evening sail too?

Sail 4 of the 6 and you qualify for a H&H excellence award at the Commodores' banquet!

Check out the flyer.

Time to sign up for race duty

... great way to learn about racing

What it's all about... The race duty crew normally consists of three people on the committee boat (the pontoon boat) plus one or two whalers (motorboats) with two people aboard each. Those on the committee boat manage the race - determining the course, raising and lower flags, sounding signals. They also record the results.

Folks on the whalers place the racing marks and act as safety crew, should assistance be needed. Being part of this crew puts you in the company of experienced sailors and racers. You can learn a lot just being part of the action.
