The TNR Program is fast, fun, and competitive 'short-course racing', with most races lasting between 20 and 30 minutes.
Spinnakers, Windward Leeward courses, and a dinghy-style (3 minute) starting sequence make for lots of action at the starts, marks, and even finishes!
Teams must register at the start of the season in March. Each team is comprised of at least two skippers, who share race committee duties and series responsibilities.
