Thank you for your 2017 SSS Membership and welcome aboard!  

Our Race schedule for 2017 is:

  • January 28                   Three Bridge Fiasco             Bay
  • March 25                     Corinthian                             Bay
  • April 15                       Round the Rocks                   Bay
  • May 20                        Singlehanded Farallones       Ocean
  • July 5-11                     LongPac                                Ocean
  • August 12-13               Drakes Bay                           Ocean
  • September 16               Half Moon Bay                     Ocean
  • October 21-22              Vallejo 1-2                            Bay

The races are evenly divided between in the Bay and Ocean.  For the past three years the SSS joined OYRA for Drakes Bay and that weekend is back by popular demand.  The perennially popular Half Moon Bay race will return in the [usually] lighter winds of mid-September.

If you are thinking of doing one or more of the ocean races, and have not completed a Safety at Sea Seminar, then you may want to check out the US Sailing seminar schedule at

2017 is a LongPac year. The Great Pacific Longitude Race is a 400 mile round trip, and is an important bench mark and qualifier for those considering the 2018 Transpac.

The success of SSS over the years is a result of the efforts of members and individuals who step up to work on committees, events, and races.  If you decide to sit out a race, drop us an e-mail – we can always use an extra person on the race deck.  If you have a sailing experience you would like to share, why not give a presentation at one of our meetings?  If you have ideas to make the SSS better, contact any of us and we will listen.

Fair Winds, Safe Sailing, and Lots of FUN!!!
