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 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.
