ECSA is updating the Circuit Schedule as event organizers advise of their intentions


Running and participating in a sailing event is a club, skipper and crew decision. ECSA will score any of the remaining scheduled races as club/organizing authorities determine they can run the regatta within the current state and local guidelines and restrictions. The responsibility for a boat’s decision to participate in a race or to continue racing is hers alone.


As the number of races have been reduced, ECSA has amended for 2020 the ECSA Offshore Racing Circuit Regulations – 3. Circuit Races – C) To qualify for scoring in the circuit: 

1) Spinnaker – sail five or more races

2) Non-Spinnaker – sail four or more races

ECSA’s Commodore’s Trophy is awarded to an ECSA member that has made a significant contribution to our Sailing Community. It’s not an annual award, it is reserved to recognize those that truly make a difference for all of us. On November 16, 2019 at ECSA’s Annual Dinner at Pine Orchard, ECSA awarded the Commodore’s Trophy to Judy Gibbs for the incredible amount of time, effort and results that she has given to ECSA. Please follow this link to read all of Judy’s contributions over the years.

If you are mounting a serious racing campaign, send the ECSA Board of Directors a letter explaining your campaign, plans and expenses. The Board meets monthly to decide which requests merit consideration. You can help by donating to the Grant Fund when you become a member, and you can do it on line.
