TPYC offers a variety of sailing racing opportunites from late June through Labor Day and are usually open to members, non-members, and sailing lessons students. Sunday racing usually takes place at 3pm mostly with Lasers but also other boats. There are also regattas on holidays such as Independence Day and Labor Day. The Club Championships are the Andrews Cup (all ages in club supplied FJs), Horsman Cup (junior sailors in FJs), and McGuckian Cup (under 14 years old in Turnabouts).

If you can’t sail consider lending your boat to another sailor. It’s a Taylor Pond tradition. Help promote participation. More sailors means more enjoyment for all.
In addition to Lasers, the committee will offer a separate start (and trophies) for any class of three or more Optis, Turnabouts, FJs or other. If three or more different boats notify the race committee 24 hours before the race, the committee will offer a start and score a handicap class. Sailing students should talk with Sailing Program Director Mike Horn about whether they are ready to race Sundays.
The Race Committee is looking for new volunteers. No experience necessary; they will train you. Folks with experience operating powerboats needed to drive the committee boat and the mark boat.
