Posted May 15, 2017

Early registration rates end on June 22 for The 2017 Etchells Worlds, sailed this year on San Francisco Bay and hosted by The San Francisco Yacht Club.  The Worlds events kick off on September 22 and run through September 30.  Go here: for more detail about the upcoming racing.

The planners at the SFYC are busy putting together not just world class racing on the water, but also fun events on land including  a Craft & Dram night, an Aussie sponsored evening and a great banquet dinner at the neighboring (read: walking distance) Corinthian Yacht Club in their historic wood paneled hall overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge and sparkling lights of San Francisco.  

The San Francisco Yacht Club, founded in 1869, is the oldest yacht club west of the Mississippi . The Club is a world class sailing facility, with one of the finest protected anchorages in the Bay Area, operates year round, with harbor, dry-sail area, and a full service restaurant and bar.  

The Etchells, a 30’ fiberglass keel boat, designed by Skip Etchells has enjoyed a thriving global following by world class sailors for the past 50 years.   Etchells World champions include Volvo Ocean racers, America’s Cup winners and Olympic medalists.
