The Knarr was designed to be a day sailer in Norway in 1943 but in reality it is a thorougbred race machine that has been a permanent fixture on the San Francisco bay since the early 1960's. Knarr, isn't just a boat, it's a lifestyle. Racing is the glue that holds us together.
We race both here in San Francisco and abroad in Norway and Denmark during our International Knarr Championships. Locally, we compete as a one Design Class in the following:
We compete in many invitational regattas like the Spring One Design, The Elite Keel, The Fall Classic and of course the St.FYC's fabled "Woodies" regatta.
We are a WBRA Fleet
We race in the St.FYC's Wednesday Night Woodies Series
We compete in the GGYC's Midwinters
All in all, that comes out to nearly 60 races a year! It is a fun schedule and a wonderful way to enjoy the bay.
