Lightnings race every Thursday evening at 5:30pm and Saturday at one pm, with three races, out of Orient Harbor.
Sonars race along side with handicapped sailboats every Sunday @ one pm. Amount of races vary.
Times for each of the races may change, so please be in contact with the club to find out adjusted starting times.
Everyone, whatever your ability, is invited to come to the dock before races to seek a spot as crew with one of the sailboats.
You are also invited to participate in club racing by joining on the committee boat, or by volunteering to bring your boat to act as the committee boat. One of the members of the Race Committee for the club will be happy to instruct you on the rules of racing.
Orient Yacht Club is a social club, a junior sailing club and, last but not least, a yacht club. The officers are more than happy to teach you to join in this last activity which takes enormous advantage of the location of our club on one of the most beautiful bays in New York State.
