UPDATE: As of 2020 Kinetics is no longer participating in racing events.
Kinetics participates in several events from March through November. We are often recruiting new crew. Our goal is to always have a nice mix of people on the boat and this means men and women of varying ages and skills. As a larger boat there are some roles on the boat that require significant upper body strength. However, there are other roles where agility, knowledge and experience are what is needed. Kinetics now rates a 96 PHRF. The boat is best suited to long course, point to point events. We don’t participate in weeknight windward/leeward series except occasionally for summer fun and practice. The boat is well maintained, has a growing set of racing sails and provides a level of comfort not found on some smaller, dedicated race boats. The comfort comes in trade for some performance. We make up for that in heavy weather handling and amenities like a proper head, galley, huge fridge, heat and less time on the rail! As a group we strive to do well, learn something new every time we go out, have a good time and come back feeling like we did our best. If you have the right attitude, the aptitude and the interest you will be given the chance to try different roles on this boat. We can all learn something from everyone that steps aboard.
