Lake Leelanau Racing Instructions

Can I borrow a LYC boat?

Yes! You can sign up to borrow a Butterfly or FJ for the Wednesday and Saturday races. Sign-ups are posted outside the clubhouse. All 10 boats should be available, and we allow a 2- person wait list. If you do not come to rig your boat by 1:00pm, it will be given to other sailors.

How are the races scored?

1 PT for starting
1 PT for finishing
1 PT for each boat beaten
A sailor's season total is the sum of the sailor's 20 best races.

Fleet races take place on a triangle course which, thanks to our dedicated race committee, is set up each day based on the wind.

The committee boat leaves from the Leland Yacht Club approximately one hour before the start. Information about racing location can be obtained from the committee prior to their departure.

Please email Susanna Nash with any questions.
