Year-Round Sunday Series
Sunday Series Schedule & Results
We're in one of those fortunate places that is possible to have year round sailing. So why not take full advantage of it. We offer four series covering each season of the year. Each series consist of eight Sunday races and the best seven will count. On cancelled races there won't be any make up race.
Our race procedure is simple: We pick a course that everyone follows. We all start at the same time. We report our elapsed time and we determine the positions after calculating the adjusted time for each boat using its PHRF rating.

Current race series schedule
The 2020 Winter Series was concluded on March 15th.
Further SCYC racing has been suspended due to the Corona virus emergency but a few local sailors are continuing to race on an informal basis - open to anybody provided they follow Covid protocols. If you are interested we can put you in touch with them.
Fall 2020 Series ON so far!
Since we are still living under the pandemic, we're cautiously restarting our regular Sunday series this fall. We'll update any changes as we continue to monitor the situation.
The series will consist of eight races with one discard. Cancelled races are not rescheduled. If more than one race is cancelled then discard is ignored and all non-cancelled races count towards the result.
