As a member of the Yacht Racing Association and U.S. Sailing, racing has always been an important part of Sheldrake's history.

Our ambitious racing season runs from spring through fall and is designed for both the serious, advanced sailor and the novice. 

At Sheldrake, we stress fun and encourage participation, whatever the experience.

The racing season includes our historic Whaler's Race - unique for its start at anchor, with sails down. Sailors from all over the Sound compete each year for the Whaler’s Skylark Cup. 

If you are interested in entering a race, please fill out the racing form below.  Please make sure that you have filled out and returned the race waiver form.  You only have to do this once a season, not for every race.
