Butterfly Fleet 20 sails out of CSC and the White Rock Boat Club. The Butterfly is a 12' cat-rigged scow which is usually sailed by one person. They race on Saturdays year round.
The Corinthian is the largest boat at CSC. With a main, jib and spinnaker, this keel boat is a classic. The Corinthian is easily handled by two and is used for both day sailing and racing on Sundays.Websites:
The Laser is one of the most popular single-handed dinghies in the world. The boat is high-performance and relatively low cost. The Laser also provides very competitive racing for ALL AGES due to the very tight class association controls which eliminate differences in hull, sails and equipment. The lasers sail on Wednesday nights in the Spring, Summer and Fall.
The very first chartered Snipe fleet originated at White Rock Lake in 1934 and now Snipe Fleet 1 calls CSC home. The Snipe is a 15-1/2 ft. sloop weighing 381 pounds with serious "go-fast" controls which have attracted racing sailors world-wide. Very tight one-design class rules and superior construction requirements mean these boats remain very competitive for years.
Dallas Snipe Fleet 1 has loaner boats, boats for sale, and a lease-to-buy option. We assist new members with rigging and tuning. All levels of ability, from beginner to expert, are welcome at our "short course" practice races which are held year round. See our Snipe Fleet Meetup page for the latest schedule of fleet activities including the practice races. Contact Us if you want to join in the fun!
Racing radio control sailboats is very exciting and lots of fun. All of the tactics are the same as for sailing full size boats, but with model boats everything happens much more quickly. There are lots of starts and lots of buoy roundings. Skippers are often of very competitive big boat skippers. When you get it right, it is fairly simple. Here are some of the tips we have learned over the years that will help guide you to having a terrific time racing your radio control sailboat with a fun group of fellow sailors.
CSC is committed youth sailing education, which teaches children so much about sailing, but also about personal responsibility, safety and being a part of a team. Our Juniors programs are led by experienced sailors that have been working with youth for many years.
Some of our upcoming Juniors Education programs will be listed on this page, and you can register for each as noted.
The goal of our WOW Program is to give CSC members the opportunity to meet other women sailors, spend time on the water and get more comfortable being on and skippering boats. In order to participate in WOW, you must be a member of CSC. If you are not a member and are interested in getting more information about joining CSC, please visit our Membership Page.
With the current COVID-19 situation, we continually monitor and assess our capacity for in-person meetings. We send program information and meeting dates via our email list. To be added to the email list or for more information, contact our Women on the Water program coordinators.
