Pymatuning Racing

Pymatuning Century Club (PCC) participates along with the Pymatuning Yacht Club (PYC)  and other clubs in several races throughout the week.  Whether you're a keelboat sailor or prefer a small boat, there is something for everyone. Although some sailing experience is required, beginners are welcome. Racing is a great way to build your skills quickly and improve teamwork and communication. Come meet new sailing friends or reconnect with old ones. Please arrive at the start line a few minutes before races start and check in with the Race Committee boat. All races are held from May into September. Read on for additional details about each class or contact our racing coordinator, Gene Soriano (or 724.612.4962) for more information. We hope to see you on the race course this summer! RACING SCHEDULE.

Wednesday Night Flying Scot and JAM Races

We kick off racing on Wednesday evenings with the Flying Scot fleet at 5:09pm. One of our teaching Scots (Sassy Lassie) participates on Wednesdays. Flying Scots are allowed to fly spinnakers. Scots are followed by keelboat JAM races (Jib and Main) over a 2 nm course starting at 5:15pm. Several of our PCC boats participate on Wednesday nights.  After the race, all participants are invited to dinner and stories on the PCC porch (meals are provided by racing captains and crew). All club members are invited and encouraged to participate in races either as a crew on someone else’s boat or by entering their own boats. 

Friday Night Laser and Sunfish Races

Friday nights are casual and oh so fun small boat races! A fleet of Lasers kicks off at 6:30pm, followed by a Sunfish start 5 minutes after the Lasers. There's nothing like sailing into a sunset on a beautiful summer night. It's BYOB (bring your own boat) or borrow one of our club Sunfish!* After the race come dry off and warm up by our fire pit! Contact us for sign up information. 
*Please note: Sunfish are available to borrow for club members, but you must be approved by one of our instructors.

Saturday & Sunday Small Boat Races

You may have seen the lake flooded by colorful spinnakers on Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Races kick off at 2pm each day and include Flying Scots (Fleet #200), Thistles (Fleet #31) and Lightnings (Fleet #36). These are competitive but welcoming groups of sailors and new members are welcome and encouraged.
