Sailfest is a casual racing event on Friday evenings in June, July, & August hosted by CYC (Corinthian Yacht Club) in June, STYC (Sloop Tavern Yacht Club) in July, and Seattle Sailing Club in August. 

Sailfest promotes a friendly and inclusive atmosphere. It is designed to be a relaxed and stress-free experience, whether individuals are new to racing and looking to get started or simply want to have fun on the water with other boats. Unlike traditional racing events, the event does not have a formal Race Committee. Instead, teams participating in the event are trusted to adhere to the honor system for the start. 

After the on-the-water activities, the event continues ashore with a social gathering where participants can unwind, socialize, and enjoy food and beverages. This aspect of Sailfest further promotes a sense of camaraderie and provides an opportunity for sailors to connect and share their experiences. Please review the shore-side event information on the registration link below.
