The Keelboat Fleet represents all keelboats at Lake Lanier Sailing Club. The Keelboat 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, Wavelength 24, J-22, Capri 22 and Melges 24 joining us in the fun.
Racing within the keelboat fleet, one can race against many types of boats, often those that are similar in type and configuration. We use the Performance Handicap Racing Fleet (PHRF) Time-On-Distance for handicapping. All our regattas are open so that other clubs around the lake can come join us.
The Keelboat Fleet sponsors several events throughout the year including: the Wednesday Night Series I & II (two 10 race series) & Wednesday Night Encore Series (5 races), the Dogwood Regatta in the spring, and the weekend PHRF Championship Series (3 race days throughout the year). Additionally, we participate in the Lanier Cup, a lake-wide club championship challenge.
Whatever time of the year it is, the Keelboat Fleet has racing options open for you. Since the club is part of the Lanier Auxiliary Racing Committee (LARC), there are fall and 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.
