Fairwind Racing Program

Get in touch!

If you are interested in racing on one of the Fairwind Yacht Club boats as a crew member, contact us, we are frequently looking for crew! It is a great way to learn about boats, fine-tune your sailing skills, have fun on the water and make new friends.

If you have other questions about our Racing Program, would like to suggest a race we should organize or participate in the Race Committee, please contact FYC Race Chair Michael McKinsey at race_chair@fairwind.org. 

Fairwind Yacht Club has an active group of racers both in Marina del Rey and in Channel Islands Harbor that participates regularly in local sail races. Some members race on club boats, some crew for skippers that are members of other yacht clubs.

In 2017, the club boats in Channel Islands were raced in the Wet Wednesday series, organized by the Anacapa Yacht Club. Boats in the Marina del Rey fleet competed in the Tuesday Night series, Barbeque series and Sundown series. In September, we were the Race Committee for Series #6 of the Tuesday Night Trials and hosted a well-attended and rambunctious dock party. 

In earlier years, the club has organized ASMBYC Home Port Regattas, SCYA Midwinter Regattas for Hobie Waves and Hobie Wave Summer Series, a worthy tradition that we hope to uphold.

Stay tuned!
