David and Linda Belleville Take Variety, Scot Trophies: Tom Tys Rules in the Sunfish Class.
WET FUN SINCE '61
The Piseco Yacht Club runs races every weekend from July 4 through the Labor Day weekend, with two races every Saturday and July 4, and two races on many Sundays. There are special trophy races on "Senior Weekend" and "Junior Weekend".
You are welcome to join the Yacht Club as either a sailing member or as a social member to participate in the activities of the club and help support the club's program.
If you are hesitant to join as a sailing member because you are not familiar with sailboat racing rules or protocol, you are welcome to join a few races and have one of our members either sail with you or help you with some basic instruction.
We have races and programs for both Junior sailors age 18 and younger and Senior sailors. Juniors generally race Sunfish sailboats, while Seniors race in a variety class--mainly Sunfish, Hobie Cats, and Flying Scots, although all types of sailboats are allowed, including windsurfers. Boats are handicapped by class, so slower types of boat can win!
The club sponsors an annual Poker Run on the lake for the benefit of the Piseco Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
Annual social events include a preaseason meeting, a picnic in July, and an awards party at the end of August.
