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 plus two other stand alone races.
There is a £50 race fee for the three midweek points series at Fairlie. This Fee also includes Passage Races, the Autumn Points Races, and a second copy of the Yearbook.
Kip midweek racing will be in Pursuit Race format in 2023, with Restricted Sail 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 2023. This will include a second Yearbook copy.
