Rhodes 19

Are you looking for competitive, one-design racing with a group of fun people? Look no further! Fleet 12 has been active for over 50 years and we're the largest one-design fleet at CCYC.  Please visit our fleet website at rhodes19fleet12.racing to join the fleet.

We are committed to competing at a high level, while also encouraging people new to sailing and/or racing to join us. We race with a crew of three and you'll find that everyone has a job at every point in the race. The Rhodes 19 is a stable boat, but there is nothing lazy about her.

Come to the club on Wednesdays at 5pm or Sundays at 10am mid May-September and sail with us. Our skippers are committed to the adage, "Don't leave anyone on the dock." Experience is not required—we'll help you learn. You'll see us launching our boats on the cranes… just ask if any of the Rhodes 19s are looking for crew. It'll be the best question you ask all summer!

Fleet 12 has a Groups.io Group which we use to send announcements to members and post photos. To join, visit the group page or simply send a blank email message to the address:

  • Fleet Rules
    • Each Rhodes 19 skipper is expected to serve as PRO on at least one Sunday race day during the season. The skipper's boat will be scored RCD for the races on one of the days when the skipper is PRO. The RCD score is the average of the other qualifying scores in the series.
