The Auxiliary Fleet represents all keelboats at Lake Lanier Sailing Club. The Auxiliary Fleet is the most varied fleet at LLSC, consisting of a broad spectrum of sailboats from 20' to large cruisers. We also have one design fleets such as J-24, J-22, and Melges 24 joining us in the fun.
Racing within the Auxiliary fleet, one can match up with a Catalina 22 or a Columbia 32 depending on the racing fleet designations. We use the Performance Handicap Racing Fleet (PHRF) Time On Distance for handicapping and we usually have several fleets to group sailing boats of similar speeds and types. All our regattas are open so that other clubs around the lake can come join us.
The Auxiliary Fleet sponsors several regattas during the year: the 1064 Regatta, the PHRF Championships, the Encore Series (5 races), and the Whitecapper Regatta. Additionally, we attend the Lanier Cup, a lake-wide club championship challenge.
Whatever time of the year it is, the Auxiliary Fleet has racing options open for you. Since the club is part of the Lanier Auxiliary Racing Committee (LARC), there are 5 fall races and 5 winter races that are open to our fleet. Whether you are a racing fanatic or a laid back cruiser that wants to go the same direction as the other sailboats, this fleet is for you.
