Minneapolis Sailing Center Members of all ages are invited to participate in the weekly races hosted by the Calhoun Yacht Club (CYC) on Bde Maka Ska.  We hope to grow the amount of sailboat racing that happens on our lake by encouraging new and experienced sailors to join a race and have some fun!  

We will host several clinics throughout the summer where Members who are interested in racing will learn the basics and get on the water to race.  If you are interested in racing please contact to sign up for the racing email list. 


The Racing season starts in late May and runs through mid-September.  Plan to arrive at least 30 minutes before the start of the race to get rigged and ready. The basic schedule for sailboat races is as follows. 

  • Wednesday Nights - 6:30 PM

  • Saturdays - 1:00 PM

Volunteer Judges and Safety Boat drivers Needed

To help safely run the races, we need volunteers who can operate a motor boat or who want to learn how to be a Race Official.  The current Calhoun Yacht Club Race Committee has offered to run free clinics on how to run a race and bring Members on board during actual races to gain experience.  This is a great way to get involved and learn more about racing!  To sign up, email us at
