Dave Wall Series

The Dave Wall Race Series

Named for a charter member of the Pacific Singlehanded Sailing Association who lost his life at sea, this series consists of five races ranging in distance from 15 to 29 nautical miles. The races are held in the summer and fall months following the Dan Byrne Series, and serve as a superb entry to the world of short- handed sailing.


All races are open to monohull sailboats from 20 to 60 feet in length. The PHRF rating system is used for handicap purposes. The required safety equipment list is patterned after the 2014-2016 ISAF Offshore Special Regulations. Membership in the PSSA or any other yacht club is not required. If the boat does not have a current PHRF rating, PSSA will establish a rating. Multihulls are welcome to compete and will be scored in the Mariners class only. PSSA recommends that all participants join PSSA by paying modest dues to support the organization and to keep informed of PSSA events and race results in the club’s monthly newsletter, SOLO. Race results are also posted on the club’s website, www.pssala.com.
