Carlyle Yacht Club

Racing Program

The CYC Racing Program provides a wide variety of opportunities for sailors of all skill levels to participate.

Buoy Racing Program:
Provides for windward-leward race courses and fleet racing, with up to three races scheduled on a given race date. Spinnaker and Non-spinnaker classes will be accommodated. Races will be approximately 4 miles in length and under the direction of a race committee. Buoy racing will be conducted under PHRF handicapping and scored time on time.

Regattas are day or weekend events where all Carlyle Lake sailors may participate. A regatta may include one or several round-the-buoys races, or a distance course. Regattas may be sponsored by any of the clubs on the Lake, including CYC, CSA, BYC, and Tradewinds.

Wednesday Navy:
Provides for a fun way to play hookey second and fourth Wednesday of the month on summer afternoons. Non-spinnaker only, sailed on a distance course between the dam, Coles Creek and Cove 4. The start is a rabbit start, where a boat's starting time is dependent on its rating. The first boat to finish wins the race.

Radio Controlled Sailing Fleet:
Radio Controlled Sailing Fleet began in the spring of 2006 and became an AMYA sanctioned club in the Fall of 2006. We have sailors of all skill levels and encourage all who have an interest in sailing. Join us at any of our scheduled races and take the controls of one of our boats to get the "feel" of it. We sail primarily Soling One Meter boats but all RC boats are welcome.
