Thornbury Yacht Club Racing Program

There is no better way to learn to sail your boat to its maximum potential than participating in the TYC racing program. Racing is just cruising with enthusiasm. The program is designed to encourage all members to race their boats in a relatively informal and safe environment.  Racing is governed by a set of international rules and local Sailing Instructions designed to provide safety, fair sailing and race management appropriate for the TYC fleet. 


Club Boat Racing

All boats race with their own “time on time “ handicap established under the PHRF-LO ( Performance Handicap Racing Fleet – Lake Ontario) handicap system. More information on obtaining a certificate.
Races are held on weekends throughout the year, see race schedule for more information.



New for 2018, the laser race series will run during the summer months.

RG65 Radio Controlled

A fun way to learn about sailboat racing or hone your existing skills in a low risk environment. Get your racing fix without getting your feet wet (in most cases). Lots of fun and very social. One design racing occurs inside the protection of the harbour.
