2021 Racing Membership

Category:

$300.00

The centerpiece of the club’s racing program are the Wednesday night races. Three Series of 5 races each are run between mid -May thru mid-September. At the end of the year, awards are given out at the annual banquet in early November for each Series winners as well as awards for the Fleet Champions.

BHSC also provides a Tuesday racing program. One is titled China Light which is designed as a women’s teaching program. Certain parameters exist such as a female must be the helmsperson, she must be a BHSC member and there must be more women onboard than men. This is designed to encourage women to become actively involved in sailing and to provide as much racing experience as we can offer.

*Racing Members MUST pay prior to 3/1 to avoid a late charge. Receipt of form alone does not constitute registration. Payment must be complete. 

We strongly encourage all sailors to join US Sailing. The BHSC will be following the USSA rules for the Member Partner Program, which includes discounts for Regatta Entry Fees, etc. US SAILING is the National Governing Body (NGB) for the sport of sailing and sailboat racing in the United States. Chosen by Congress as the NGB for the sport through the Amateur Sports Act, US SAILING’s mission is to encourage participation and promote excellence in sailing and sailboat racing in the United States. A member-based non-profit organization, US SAILING accomplishes its’ mission through volunteers and member organizations, supported by an administrative staff.

The Campaign to Round Up is a donation to our escrow for capital purchases such as a new boat. It is not used for operating expenses. Please consider making a small donation- only $10 increases your membership cost to $65..well worth it. The donations add up over time and with many contributing!
