    Flying Scot Wednesday is sponsored by Flying Scot Fleet #135. Newer sailors who have taken an introductory lesson are matched with experienced sailors in teams of three for maximum learning and maximum fun.  The format for Wednesdays is very casual racing on a short course followed by snacks in the pavilion.  Please email fleet135racing@gmail.com with questions or special requests. 

    Please RSVP through Wednesday at Noon and check in with Eric for boat assignments at the lake.   

    Members of the Flying Scot Sailing group will receive an event announcement email.  Those who do not RSVP yes or no (see announcement email) may receive multiple announcement emails.

    Registration for Venetian Night is now open!

    Join us for a Venetian night celebration!   Rain or shine!   Members can sponsor a guest by purchasing their dinner through Wild Apricot. Please place food order through Wednesday the 10th. 

    4:00pm - Cabin boats will assemble on dock after the racers have returned to the dock.  

    5:00pm - Dock walk begins.  Cabin boat owners welcome guests on their boats to show off their rides.  A great opportunity to see different boats and meet new people.   

    6:30pm - Dinner is served.  Dinner will include a chicken or veggie Entree, potato and macaroni salads, cranberry pistachio couscous, tomato/watermelon/feta/cucumber salad with mint, hearty green salad loaded with veggies, grilled veggies, and halloumi. PLUS blueberry cobbler for dessert! Registrants should be able to indicate how many and which type of entree (chicken or vegetarian) - please contact us at clintonlakesailing@gmail.com if you run into any issues!

    7:55pm - Sunset.  Cabin boats have historically decorated their boats with festive lights and invite friends for a sunset sail off the dock and return under the light of a gibbous moon.  Many cities around the world celebrate their own version of Venetian Night, modeled off the the popular boat parades in Venice, Italy.

    Starting at 12:30pm, Flying Scot Skipper Training is for Flying Scot Wednesday and Thistle Thursday sailors who want to take their boat handling skills to the next level.  Our most experienced racers and instructors set up a training course and provide coaching from the chase boat and jump in/out of boats upon request.   Skippers can recruit their own crew or ask our training coordinator to assign multiple skippers to one boat. 

    Skipper Training Guide

    After a quick whiteboard session in the pavilion, we'll set up a racecourse and we'll race three short races starting at 1:30pm.   These will look like regatta races, but RRS 41 will not apply as outside instruction and coaching is permitted from our instructors and fellow racers.
