Thinking of buying a sailboat to use at the PVYC?

Talk to a PVYC sailor first!  The river at the PVYC is too shallow for fixed keel
sailboats.    Shoal keel and centerboard sailboats do best.

Sailing Orientation, June 10, 2012  by Bill Collins, PVYC Race Committee
Welcome to the PVYC Sailing/Racing Page!

We are having a great racing season on the CT River in 2018,
with two final regattas still coming up to determine the Club Championship.
And, the prestigious Commodore’s Cup on Sept 30 to cap off the year.
Check out some great new pictures and a video highlighting our July and August Races.

2018 co-chairs, Vana Nespo and Al Whitehouse along with our outstanding race committee have
been busy supervising racing for up to 8 boats on Sunday afternoons at 2:30 p.m.

Come join in the fun! The PVYC owns 3 sailboats now available to members who wish to get out on
the water and learn about sailing.  
Contact Vana at vana.nespor@gmail.com to learn more!

We have ‘The Shuttle’ an aluminum dinghy with an electric motor

to help get the sailors out to their moorings.
For clearance to use the dinghy, contact Vana or John Dalsey at:john.dalsey@gmail.com
