Fairlie Yacht Club has a very active racing community. We are very keen to encourage more members to take up racing with initiatives like the restricted sail class to ease the learning curve - give it a try!
You will need to make sure you have insurance for racing risks, a sail number, and a CYCA handicap.
Midweek Racing takes place on Tuesday evenings at Fairlie/Largs, and Wednesday evenings at Kip. There are usually six weekend Musters, with seven associated Passage Races. In 2021 we are trialling an 11 race passage race series, dertails in the Yearbook
There is a £50 race fee for all midweek points series at Fairlie. This Fee also includes Passage Races, the Autumn Points Series, and a second copy of the Yearbook
Kip midweek racing will be in Pursuit Race format in 2021, with Restricted sail and Spinnaker Classes available this year, and will be free to members.
Non members are welcome to participate, subject to a £10 per series entry fee. This fee will be offset against Membership Subscription if subsequently joining the Club.
A fee of £25 is payable for participation in Passage Races only in 2021. This will include a second Yearbook copy.

2021 Covid-19 restrictions have resulted in the first 4 races of Fairlie Points Series 1, and the first 3 races of Kip Pursuit Series 1 being cancelled.
The remaining races of both these Series have been combined with Series 2, and the number of discards will be varied accordingly.
