Welcome to Branford Around The Buoys Sailing!

“Around the buoys” takes place on Wednesdays during the summer and Sundays during the fall and is open to all boats, regardless of color, sex, religion or origin. No entries fees, no certificate required, tune on channel 68 and give the Committee Boat your boat type and model.

Starts are in the vicinity of R34. Bring your friends and spread the word. Don’t miss our beer can ten commandments. (we finance our group expenses with an Annual Dinner Party Award held during the winter). Join our Facebook group if you are looking for a boat to crew on, or crew for your boat. https://www.facebook.com/groups/aroundthebuoys/?pnref=story

Be sure to become a member of the Around the Buoys facebook group to get announcements and share photos & videos posted by our members.

The 2018 racing season begins on May 23rd - First gun at 6:10 PM. Click the Racing tab for sailing instructions, courses and other information.
