The Race Committee is responsible for managing a wide variety of sailboat racing events sponsored by Columbia Yacht Club.

area III

Area III is a division of LMSRF which is our region's rep to US Sailing. Their contribution to "Fostering racing competition among wind-powered sailing yachts" is to provide a regional structure to the racing environment.


This increases participation by:

  • Providing the racer with a standard means to signup up and participate in races from the various yacht clubs.

  • Providing a forum for the yacht clubs to coordinate their schedules and spread the events throughout the season.

  • Making it easier for the yacht clubs to sponsor races by handing signup, fee collection, scoring, protest handing, and publication of results.
