Upcoming Regattas and Races

Racing Regattas

Are you looking to race your boat competitively? BYSC hosts a variety of annual regattas, national championships, and class competitions for both dinghies and keel boats. Check out the details on our listing of BYSC hosted regattas.

PHRF Series

For the larger boats at BYSC, we have multiple PHRF series regattas where friendly rivalries rein. The fall Catboat/PHRF Series starts Sept. 5. Register here. Review the sailing instructions here.

Dinghy Series

Our dinghy racing scene is extremely active. The regattas are competitive proving grounds with multiple classes and a full race committee. Racing is available almost every weekend in the spring and fall for both adults and juniors. Read the latest.

Club Boats

The BYSC has sailboats, kayaks and SUPS available for members to borrow. Spend a family day on a JY15 or borrow a Sunfish to join our club racing series.

Beaufort Community Sailing and Boating

Beaufort Community Sailing and Boating (BCSB) is a non-profit organization that impacts the lowcountry by offering numerous boating programs and classes for youth and adults, some of which are hosted at BYSC.

Boat Storage

Stop dragging your boat home after every use. The BYSC has ample low-cost storage for boats and equipment, including trailered boat spaces, dinghy and small boat racks, rowing shell racks, and shed storage.

Docks

Pull your boat up to the dock or simply capture a summer breeze after a stroll out to the pavilion at the pier head. Long floating docks accommodate a variety of boats. Tired of pulling your boat out after every day on the water? Members can overnight on the docks three nights a month.

Boat Ramps

Our ramp for larger boats is separated by a floating ground out dock from our small unmotorized craft ramp and beach. Members appreciate how our ramps and storage pair together to get their boats from storage in the yard to the water with less time and less stress.

Moorings

For members with larger boats, our mooring field is the answer. Getting to the mooring is a breeze with the provided mooring tenders and moored boats can always stop by the docks to pick up supplies and guests or to use shore power. The moorings are available to members at an additional low cost.
