Sailing Fleet

Fleet - Sailing

CSC's fleet includes 22 dinghies, 6 keelboats, dozens of sail boards, a couple kayaks, and two powerboats.


Bahia 15



RS Venture

RS Venture

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.


RS Quest


We're replaciing the Bahias with Quests and we currently have three in the fleet



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 two Lasers.



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 and a Senior rating.

Pearson Commander

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.
