WFSC Racing Program

The Club has sponsored sailboat racing in North Texas for decades. Currently we sponsor a Big Boat Handicap Fleet, a Flying Scot Fleet (Fleet 170) and a summer evening fun small dinghy fleet. (See the 2022 schedule below).

Racing isn't all we're about, but it's a big part of it. If you're interested in getting involved, call any of the officials or fleet captains listed near the bottom of the race schedule.

The Small Dinghy Fun Fleet will race during the summer months on one day per month, to be announced. This fleet races under "fun rules," ie, if you say you won, you didn't. Single-sail small dinghies can race single handed. Two-sail boats require a crew of two or more.
