The Pettipaug Yacht Club has an extensive sail racing program starting each season on the day of the club’s Commissioning in mid-May through Decommissioning in late October.

At the core of PYC’s program is the One Design Class Regattas open to any dinghy class with three boats or more in the same class. Typically Blue Jays, Lasers and MC Scows are raced following US Sailing Association (USSA) class rules. Depending on the wind and weather conditions, five to eight races are held. Awards are given out at the end of the day, and hot dogs, hamburgers and sodas are served. Bring the family for an afternoon of FUN! Sign-up with a Fleet Captain, and call a friend and spread the word to assure there are enough boats in your class to participate.
