No sailing club would be complete without some type of race activity.
The Amelia Island Sailing Club offers the club members the opportunity to complete in club racing. Since all members have different boats, we issue PHRF’s based on the US Sailing Association guidelines. However, recognizing we are only club racers, and because the skills of members and crews are so varied, we also apply a golf score type handicapping system. This system makes the club racing more fun and gives everyone a chance to win. We have eight races yearly.
In addition, we also participate in two inter-club races yearly with the Golden Isles Sailing Club. These two ocean races, the 1st heading northbound from Amelia Island to St. Simons, and the 2nd southbound from St. Simons to Amelia island, offer many challenges due to the varied weather and sea conditions.
If fun and good spirited racing competition is your interests, you will enjoy these friendly events
