LSC in conjunction with the Motor Yacht Club of Tasmania (MYCT) conduct events for keelboats and trailer sailers largely in that area north of the Tasman Bridge. These events attract yachts from all of the major clubs in Hobart. Most popular are the Friday twilight races which are held on a fortnightly basis during the period of daylight saving. Two pennant series of six races each are held with Pennant A being sailed before Christmas and Pennant B afterwards. In addition, there is a Summer Series and a Winter Series each with six races, held on a monthly basis during the respective seasons.

In addition, many keelboats compete for the Channel Cup which is a two-race series, with the first race held mid-season and the second towards the end of the sailing season. These races end with a social event ashore usually in Barnes Bay with competitors anchoring overnight and returning to Hobart the next day. Those not interested in racing are encouraged to treat it as a cruise to the meeting point and to join in the activities ashore.

The sailing program, entry forms and sailing instructions are available from the MYCT website.

Friday twilight racing is a stress-free way to introduce crew to racing. Friday nights tend to be less demanding on crews than other forms of racing. The above the bridge race area between Geilston Bay and the Tasman Bridge is more contained, generally smoother water and everyone can see each other on the water. The racing conditions can still be challenging to crew due to complicated tides and currents and fading breezes. Regardless of the sailing conditions the priority is having fun! Laughter on boats is mandatory and there is always a social gathering, depending upon the event, at either MYCT of LSC after a race.

Please note that we require all sailors to be a member of an Australian Sailing affiliated club. MYCT is not affiliated, but LSC is. For those new to sailing, complimentary temporary membership of Lindisfarne Sailing Club is available, valid for up to four sailing sessions, via the "SailPass" system.
