The QYC sailing program centers around racing but also extends to skills development, boat maintenance and boater education.  The QYC hosts 3 major races each year – the OCEAN RESEARCH PROJECT (ORP) Regatta,  the MASTER’S of the POTOMAC  and the FROSTBITE.

This year marks the inaugural ORP Regatta (2014 Ocean Research Project NOR) which supports the OCEAN RESEARCH PROJECT non-profit organization (http://oceanresearchproject.org/ocean-research-project/ ) founded by solo circumnavigator of the Americas, Matt Rutherford.  All proceeds from the race go to the ORP which will be conducting a Trans-Pacific Plastic Pollution Survey this Spring and Summer, the first ever continent-to-continent marine debris survey.  ORP collects data on our oceans’ most dangerous problems: chemical pollution, climate change, ocean acidification and biodiversity loss

As members of the Potomac Yacht Racing Council, we participate in a number of races on the river.  The PYRC consists of seven Potomac River yachts clubs, including the QYC and the PYRC Series challenges sailors with a series of races up and down the Potomac River sponsored by the member clubs.  Trophies will be awarded at the end of the series for 1st, 2nd and 3rd  in both the spinnaker and non-spinnaker fleets. (PYRC-2014-Notice).  Our 2014 racing schedule is listed below.   We will post the each Notice of Race (NOR) as we receive them and post results for the three races we host.
