Cal 20 Fleet 8

Tacoma Yacht Club is the home for Fleet #8 of the Cal 20 Class Association. The California 20 sailboat is a sturdy and fun sailboat that is easy to sail, but challenging to master. Although originally built as racer/cruisers our Cal 20s are used primarily for one design racing. The Cal 20 is Tacoma Yacht Clubs primary keelboat one design class. Racing with other Cal 20s offer great tactical and strategic competition, and we feel a lot more fun than handicap racing.

We meet monthly, on the third Friday of each month at the Tacoma Yacht Club Bar, to talk about our next race, social event, boat maintenance, or just hang out and shoot the breeze.
