Sailing Shack Racing

Boats, Gear, News, Links & Pics for Racing Sailors

Sailing Shack is built for sailors by sailors. We want it to be the destination site for sailors who want to buy or sell new and used racing yachts, gear and clothing. It also contains information on the yacht clubs we sail from, the yachts we sail, the weather we are likely to experience and even coaches who can help us improve our skills on the water.

Sailing Shack is built to be interactive. If you want to provide information about a racing yacht,  yacht club or coaching service we don’t have then please upload it in the area provided and we will review and post it for you.

Our current fleet at Sailing Shack includes a J24, Lasers & Optimist. See you on the water!
