Carlyle Sailing Association
The Hare and Hound races are open to all classes of boats and we encourage you to take friends and family out for a structured sail around the lake for an afternoon of racing with the emphasis on fun!
The starts will be based on your PHRF number. The slowest boats start first, eliminating a crowded starting line. Scoring will be simple because a yacht's finishing position will depend solely on when she crosses the finish line in relation to the other competitors. The race course will remain the same for the entire season.
After the race, come back to the pavilion for the results and free beverages. Plan to make a day of it by grilling out. How about an evening sail too?
Sail a majority of the races this year and you qualify for a H&H excellence award at the Commodores' banquet!
The race course will start directly in front of the CSA Pavilion. From the starting line you sail to the Coles Creek mark (Red Line) and make a port rounding. From the Coles Creek mark you proceed to the Allen Branch (Blue Line) mark make a port rounding then return to the Coles Creek mark (Orange Line). You make a port rounding of the Coles Creek mark (Green Line) and return to the cabin fleet start finish line.
