New Years Day

Boat Classes

All boats are welcome. We have active Mirrors, Albacores, Lasers, Fireballs, Enterprises, Laser 2’s and Tasars which make regular appearances at our events, not to mention the junior sailors who keep us on our toes with their 420’s and RS FEVAs. Because this is X-class racing we use a handicapping system to measure sailing performance no matter what boat. HSC uses the US D-PN system. You can find a copy of the ratings here. 

Race Committee

We run races from inflatable boats equipped with the flags, horns and safety gear needed to properly officiate. The Fleet Captain appoints a race committee for each event. If you would like to be on a race committee, please let the Fleet Captain know. There will be periodic training events to help people understand how to officiate. But the best way to learn is to volunteer for a race. If you would like to volunteer, send an email to the Fleet Captain [fleet@hollyburnsailingclub.ca]


We following the Racing Rules of Sailing. However, the atmosphere is very relaxed. Sailors come out to have fun in these friendly competitions and help each other figure out who broke what rule when. Hollyburn members are more than willing to help new racers learn the rules and tactics.

Social and Results

The best part! Afterward, in the clubhouse, while the race committee crunches the corrections, members can enjoy snacks and liquid refreshments while discussing recent events. Race results are announced on the day.
