North Point Sail Racing Association is a sailboat racing club based out of North Point Marina in Winthrop Harbor Illinois. We offer a variety of racing options for our members and, for a small fee, a few are open to non-members. After the racing, we plan some type of social event (dock party, BBQ, etc) where you can discuss the days events and get to know your fellow racers.
Wednesday Races: Our Wednesday night buoy races begin in May and finish in September. The races are divided into three separate series: Spring, Summer and Moonlight Madness. First Gun is 06:30pm.
Distance Races: During the racing season, we conduct longer distance races that begin and end at North Point Marina. Unlike the Wednesday buoy races, which are only open to members, these are open to all competitors. There is usually a post-race party at the harbor building, which is included in the small race fee required of non-members. Races begin at 10am.
Destination Races: Once a year we have a destination race to Racine. We race there on Saturday, spend the night in Racine and return to North Point on Sunday.
Annual Awards Dinner: The first weekend in November, after the racing season is over, is our annual awards dinner and membership meeting. Join us for this fun evening to close out the year.
