Twilight Sailing

Twilight Sailors enjoy short course racing and great company, sailing in double-handed boats known as C420s. They race in Roberts Bay on Thursdays. The group meets for 8 week sessions through the year but do not sail in November or December. The Twilight group meets at 4:30 p.m. at the latest, quickly rigs the Club 420 sailboats and begins sailing and racing by 5:00 p.m. The comradery lasts well past sunset at the Tiki, but they sail in from their last race before the sun sets. If you’re interested in racing sailboats and meeting local sailors, this is a great group to join.

  • VYBA provides a VYBA coach in a Boston Whaler under power for safety and as a committee boat for the racing by the sailors.

  • No experience is necessary, but a willingness to have fun and an understanding that you may get wet goes a long way.

  • No protests about racing rules are allowed. It is all about having great fun with old and new friends sailing in the bays and in the Gulf.

Twilight Sailing Cost: $15/person or $30/boat for an individual night or $175/boat in advance for each 8 week session. No sailing in November or December. Cash or Check.

VYBA’s policies regarding sailing attire and care of VYBA-owned boats and property apply.
See Sailors / Parents Guidelines in a different sub tab in the Program pull down menu.

Several 8 week sessions occur between January and November.
