Fleet - Sailing
CSC's fleet includes 22 dinghies, 6 keelboats, dozens of sail boards, a couple kayaks, and three powerboats.
The Venture is a roomy trainer which is faster than it looks. These relatively new
additions to our fleet are workhorses during our lessons and open houses. Each
boat is rigged for single trapeze and asymmetrical spinnaker. CSC has two of these boats.
The club has a lone RS Vision.
The Laser is perhaps the best known one-person cat-rigged racing
dinghy. While no longer an Olympic class boat there is a substantial
fleet raced out of the Richmond marina. These boats are fairly
complicated to rig and require special instruction before they can be
checked out. CSC has one Laser.
The JY15 is a nimble dinghy that is ideal for two sailors. CSC has 7 of
these boats, rigged with trapeze gear, reefing mainsails, and masthead floats.
These boats require a special checkout.
The RS500 is a high performance two-person skiff, equipped with asymmetrical
spinnaker and a single trapeze. CSC has two of these beauties, and each comes with
two choices of sail size. These boats require a special checkout.

The club's three Commanders are the work horses of our fleet. A design by the famous naval architect, Carl Alberg. Not intended as a cruiser or a racer, the Commander makes an excellent day sailor with its 9 foot cockpit and seakindly ways. The small cabin has sitting head room, berths for four, and is large enough for cruising if the parties are well acquainted.
