In order to get more of the team on the water and building racing skills, I've added a few Monday-night training sails. The training objectives are up to each skipper and crew, but can include basic maneuvers, crew coordination, mark rounding, start line timing, spinnaker setting/dousing, sail trim, and more. The boats will launch from Washington Sailing Marina in Alexandria, and all Racing Squadron members are invited. To participate, Racing Squadron members may sign up on the Racing Sign-Up Sheet.
Contact the Racing Captain at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
These races are part of the KISS Summer II Series.

The 2022 annual Leukemia Cup will take place on Saturday, September 10th. This charitable fundraiser supports the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and is the Potomac River's biggest annual regatta. PSC will enter up to four boats in the competition. Each boat will be skippered by an experienced PSC raising skipper, but the crews are open to all PSC members. We'll rally up at Washington Marina at 8:00 am. The regatta is followed by an awards ceremony, silent auction, and BBQ cookout at the Washington Sailing Marina.
Since its inception, the Leukemia Cup has raised millions of dollars for lifesaving research and patient services, bringing help and hope to patients and their families. If you'd like to sponsor a boat and/or donate to the fight against blood cancer, please visit PSC's fundraising site, which will be available by mid-August; your contributions are tax deductible.
This race is open to all PSC members. If you're interested in participating, please contact the Racing Captain at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details. Current Racing Squadron members should sign up at Racing Sign-Up Sheet.
