Race buoys are out and the course is ready to go!
We traditionally run two races every Sunday starting at 1:30pm between July 4th and Labor day. These races are strictly for fun — very low pressure. Beginners and kids welcome and encouraged.

TheÂ Truesdale Sunfish Fleet #27Â is one of the oldest in the world.Â The Sunfish was designed and developed not far from here in Waterbury, CT. Truesdale Lake was one of the early lakes that the Sunfish design was tested on before going into production. The fleet numbers are sequentially handed out with the current fleet numbers for new fleets in the Fleet 800 range now. Check some Sunfish history is in this recent article:Â Sunfish at sixty: Most popular boat ever still keeps them busy at Portsmouth plant.
Please pass this on to anyone you think might be interested in joining us. Many of our regular sailors have extra boats and can lend one out. We can also help with beginning sailors pre-race (get in touch and come a bit early to see the start area).
Hope toÂ hear from you or see you out there!
Ira Sanchick, Sunfish Fleet #27 Commodore
