Club Marine Twilight Series

NCYC’s Club Marine Twilight Series is run on Wednesday afternoons in Summer. The start times vary dependent on daylight savings and also whether a scratch start or pursuit start is scheduled. Entrants can elect to sail spinnaker or non-spinnaker and are handicapped accordingly.

The Club Marine Twilight Series provides a great opportunity to get people new to sailing out on the water and build their skills, and presents a great social environment in which to enjoy sailing.
