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 2021 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.
