Thursday Night Race Series

Classic weeknight racing. Join the fleet for a fun evening sail around the buoys near Clapboard Island.


Arguably the most successful PYC sponsored racing event since its inception in 1961, this more casual racing attracts all sailors whether they’re inclined to race or not. The event starts at 6pm and includes an after race BBQ with daily awards (and bands in July & August) at the club. Scoring of Thursday Night Races began in 2012.


Race around the buoys, usually lasting one to two hours. Come out and join us, sign up if you wish to be scored, or just come sail for the fun of it. Courses and Mark charts here.

PYC members rotate RC duties on Thursday nights. Please go here to sign up and see the schedule. 


Post race BBQ at the club with daily awards presented to the top three finishers in each class. Bands will be scheduled in July and August, check back for details.
