Trans-Folsom

Greetings from the Folsom Lake Yacht Club!

 

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the Trans-Folsom Race, April 15, 2017.  As many local sailors know this is the only long distance (21 mile) pursuit race on Folsom Lake.  It is a challenging test of sailing skills and tactics, and also allows everyone to compete together; i.e., the slower boats get a head start and the faster boats try to catch them before the finish line.  It’s a great day of sailing and a lot of fun.  Also, if the wind goes light, we'll shorten the course so we all can get to the dock party, hand out the awards and get home at a reasonable time. 

 

Please take a moment to complete your registration.  Click here for the Notice of Race and other important information for this great event.

 

We hope to see you at the skippers meeting - 9:00 AM!  [The first boats will start at 10:00 AM.] 

 

 

PS.  We have plenty of water in the lake and we have put in a request for ‘very good wind for the entire day’.
