Notice of Race
More information about PHRF:
Wednesday Night PHRF races are a "fun" series designed to get sailors out on the water improving racing skills, hosted by Nantucket Community Sailing. Races are open to anyone in the community. Thank you to Eric Robbins, Nantucket Yacht Club principal race officer, for running the races. There is no charge to race. Prizes will be awarded weekly and to the top five overall for the series.
Each evening is generally two races, one lap around a windward/leeward course of about 1 nautical mile. The start area, depending on conditions, is 1 nautical mile northeast of the entrance to Nantucket Harbor. First gun is at 1800 (6:00PM), so plan to leave the harbor by 1700 (5:00 PM.) Generally, we will be finished by dusk and back in the harbor between 7:30-8PM. It is highly recommended that sailors have running lights, a lantern and a GPS on board in the event of fog or dark.
