Twilight Sailing Series


Every summer the Falmouth Harbor Sailing School is hosts the Twilight Sailing Series. The series includes informal races as well as coaching for less experienced sailors in stable and comfortable Sonar class sailboats. Rigging of boats starts at 4 pm, and the boats leave the dock at 5 pm, getting back before sunset. Chalk talks before racing and coaches’ debriefs afterwards provide tips for the sailors to sharpen their skills.
Individuals as well as families are welcome, and women are particularly encouraged to participate. Some sailing experience is recommended, but no previous racing experience is needed. The emphasis is to have fun, not to win the races, but some participants think it is more fun to win.
