Ware River Tuesday Night Series

Come Sail at Ware River YC

Tuesday Night Sailing Series (May 13th to June 10th)

First Race — May 13, 2008 (Warning signal 1800 [6:00 PM])

Let’s Go Sailing — We’ve planned a weekly evening series of “fun and informal” racing on the Ware River for WRYC and other local small boat sailors. New sailors can learn to sail their boats well and the experienced sailors can hone their racing skills.
