Welcome to the Valcour Sailing Club

In the spring of 1966, Valcour Sailing Club was launched out of the desire for organized racing on a regularly scheduled basis. At that time, racing was limited to weekends, one week the race was on Saturday, the second week, the race was on Sunday. As the years passed, so has the scope of organized racing. VSC now provides organized racing for two weekday series- Tuesday evening Soling races and Thursday evening PHRF races - as well as weekend Soling and PHRF Races.
