Night Sailing on Cayuga Lake

July 18th, 2016

Three boats took the opportunity to sail all night long under the moon and stars in the overnight 50 mile race. This is probably the most challenging race on the cruising fleet schedule, testing both stamina and tactics. It is also one of the most enjoyable - if you've never trimmed a spinnaker by moonlight make sure you get in on this race next year! Read the details in the Pennant.

Next Sunday's race is latitude number three - race start is 2:00pm

Racing Schedule Updates

July 5th, 2016

The Red Jacket race has been confirmed for August 20th. Don't miss dinner at the beautiful Red Jacket yacht club!

The second long distance race of the summer is our overnight 50 miler. The planned race start is the evening of Friday, July 15th at 6:00pm.

Next Sunday we continue with our second latitude series race. Updated latitude sailing instructions and latitude table are in the documents section.

Sheldrake Race and Rally

June 21st, 2016

This Sunday (June 26th) we will be sailing north to Sheldrake Point and Kidder's Landing. Any boat who wishes to race and compete for the Sheldrake Cup will be assigned a start time based on her handicap - the first one to the finish line is the winner! The first boat will start at 8:00AM.

If you are feeling more laid back, come join the cruise up to Kidder's landing (leaving IYC around 9:00AM) and meet up with the racing fleet for lunch.

RSVP's will help us plan lunch so don't be shy!

For more information and to get a starting time contact the CLCF fleet captain.

Summer Sailstice

June 19th, 2016

Blazing heat and the lightest of winds didn't dissuade this group of sailors, swimmers and pirates armed with water cannon. After two shortened races we retired to the beach for burgers and libations. See the full write up in the pennant. More photos in the gallery.
