Want to Learn to sail a V-15 ?
 
JOIN Vanguard 15 Sunday Racing Series

 

The Nashville Vanguard 15 Fleet 77 races every Sunday during the Spring and early Summer at Harbor Island Yacht Club.  The Nashville fleet is an active one-design two person boat and it is loaded with fun. We then move the boats to PPYC for the rest of the sumer, returning in the Fall to HIYC.

 

Harbor Island Yacht Club has two Vanguard 15 for loaning as does the fleet itself.  While the boat is quick and sporty it is also easy to sail. Just a main and jib...what could go wrong?  

 

The fleet is about 18 boats strong with ages ranging from mid 20’s to mid 60’s and about a fourth of the fleet are woman skippers!

And reply to Jim Milliman at Millimansb@aol.com to be placed on our google mailing list.

 

Come join the fun.
