Wednesday Night Fun Races at LJ Schooners

Many Sailboats sailing during the Wednesday Night Fun Race from LJ Schooners in Rocky Bayou

When: Every Wednesday – April – October

Time: 6:00pm

Bluewater Bay Sailing Club holds a Wednesday Night Fun Race every Wednesday (April through September) which is hosted by L.J. Schooners Oyster Bar.  This is a fun race that encourages any and all sailing craft to join in the fun in a not-so-serious sailing race which focuses on participation first and foremost.  No ratings are required and the format concentrates on enjoying a sail on our beautiful bay and returning back to the Oyster Bar at the same time for awards so everyone can enjoy themselves.  We give out daily awards and track everyone’s progress throughout the season.  We start the race at 6:00ish and usually are back at the dock by 7:30ish with awards following.  Most participants convene at the Oyster Bar around 5:00 pm where the race instructions and race committee info is posted.  Some boats traveling from their homes just meet out on the course.  This has proven to be one of the favorite events of the season and we routinely have 20+ boats out sailing.  It is what Florida living is all about.
