Racing

Welcome to ECSC Racing!

We have an active racing program with several PHRF and one-design fleets. Please see our Fleets link on the left hand navigation page to see a list of our active fleets.

We have club races on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Wednesday’s races are a single race followed by burgers and dogs at the race committee shed. Sunday’s races are generally a 3-race series each week from 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM followed by burgers and dogs at the RC shed.

Our racing season runs from mid-April through late-October and is split up into the following series:

  • Wednesday Spring Series
  • Wednesday Summer Series
  • Wednesday Twilight Series
  • Sunday Spring Series
  • Sunday Summer Series

We host three open regattas each year. The Mayor’s Cup in the spring, the ECSC Beach Party Regatta in the summer, and the Governor’s Cup in the fall. These regattas attract racers from throughout the Midwest region. We also host a one-design regattas for Flying Scots, a special regatta for cruising boats called the Indy 200 (entrants must have a PHRF rating of 200 or more and be a keel boat with a cabin). Our final regatta for the season is the Hornback Regatta named for our first Commodore, Dr. Ned Hornback. It is a pursuit race where the fast start last and everyone races for the finish line.
