  • Yarmouth Latchstring Fleet Race - April 2, 2017

    Despite the snow, Yarmouth Sailing hosted a successful fleet racing regatta on Sunday April 2. Kevin did a great job being race committee and fit in a total of 12 races despite weird, shifty wind. In A fleet, Ben and Emi had fun with the challenging conditions and sailed a solid set of races. Abby and Salome showed their prowess in light conditions, taking third and second in their first two B fleet races. Sophia and Nastia graciously agreed to sail B fleet for our friends Boothbay. They sailed phenomenally and took second overall in B fleet. Thanks to everyone who shoveled and our fantastic lunch crew for making our regatta a big success!

  • News as of Tuesday, March 28th
    Spring Season has started!  March 20th was the first day, and the sailors dug the boats out of the snowbanks left by the recent blizzard.  They rigged masts and prepped for launching, which happened the next day.  Snowy day on the first Friday practice and was so miserable that Coach called a land meeting at YHS.  The team is 14 sailors strong -- 10 of whom have sailed over the past several seasons, along with two new 8th graders (welcome GW and Sandy!) and two new sailors (welcome Jack and Caleb!).

    The team attended the annual Team Race Clinic hosted by Pete Levesque at SailMaine over March 25 & 26th.  Not much wind on Saturday, but a better day for Sunday and the team did some 2 on 2 practice racing. 

    Looking ahead, Yarmouth will host a team race on Saturday (no snow, Mother Nature!!!) and a fleet race on Sunday where we currently have 10 teams registered.

    Today, Yarmouth registered for the Women's Herreshoff Trophy for the first time in its history.  Qualification will happen at SailMaine on April 30th, with the regatta sailed at Brown University on May 6 & 7th.

  • Pre-Season Mandatory Meeting for SAILMAINE
    March 13th at 6 PM at Portland High School, usually in the auditorium.   All Sailors are expected to attend.  We will have a quick Yarmouth team meeting with sailors and parents following the SailMaine meeting.

    Season Schedule, Expectations, Code of Conduct Forms, etc.  Also, probably a chance to order discounted sailing gear from Landing Boat Supply (which is located in the same complex at the Royal River Grillhouse in Yarmouth).

  • Team Racing Clinic -- Feb. 26, 2017 3-5 PM
    Hey Team, All are invited to attend the Team Racing clinic at Portland Yacht Club.  There are specific rules and "plays" that make up the strategy and execution of team racing.  It helps if sailors already are familiar with some of this prior to hitting the water at the end of March.  Skippers especially need to be in attendance!
