Cedar Point Yacht Club works hard to keep at the front of the pack when it comes to racing.
We offer quality and competitive racing year-round with summertime weekday and weekend one-design and handicap racing and on-design frostbite racing through the winter. CPYC promotes high-quality, friendly competition, good sportsmanship, and camaraderie among sailors. In 2019 we ran more than 500 races for our one-design and handicap fleets.
In addition to our racing, junior, and women's sailing programs, we host an extensive regatta schedule including numerous regional and national championships. Each year we host one of the premier big boat and centerboard one-design regattas. To read more about Cedar Point Yacht Club's upcoming (or past) regattas, [click here].
Cedar Point Yacht Club schedules and hosts diverse one-design fleet racing. The fleet of classic Atlantic Class boats sails Saturday and Sunday every summer weekend. In 2019 that was thirty-one days of racing. Thistles, Lightnings and Flying Scots race Saturdays and most days of the big summer Cup weekends. Race location and course length is specifically targeted to how these fleets want to race. Thistles had over fifty races at Cedar Point in 2019. Vanguard 15s gather Thursday evenings from before Memorial Day to after Labor day. In 2019 there were a dozen qualifiers with over a hundred races sailed total. Vanguards also sail Sunday's throughout the summer. J/70s and Stars join the Atlantics for their own starts on select weekend days thoughout summer.

Junior sailing is the legacy Cedar Point Yacht Club leaves going forward by leading today. In 2020 Cedar Point Yacht Club supports the Junior Sailing Association with the hosting of several key regattas in support of juniors.
The biggest event of the week is Wednesday Night Racing with the Cruising Class Fleet. Thirty-six qualifiers made 2019 one of the best years on record. Racing is followed by the hugely popular weekly dinner – a do not miss event. Visit the Cruising Class pages to learn more. Cedar Point Yacht Club also hosts a series of five navigation races, and a selection of premier weekend regattas all designed to provide the handicap cruising class owner with a selection of great racing opportunities.
