Consider yourself a non-racer? Might be time to give racing a try!
The Memorial Cup Race is scheduled to be sailed this Saturday June 23rd.
The mandate of this race is twofold, to celebrate the past members of the Club and to encourage as many members to participate as possible. The format of the race will be discussed at the skipper's meeting in the pavilion at 9:30 Saturday morning and the race will commence at 11:00 in the vicinity of the Fairway Mark.
The beautiful Memorial Cup Race trophy will be unveiled at the skippers meeting. The race is exclusively WHITE SAIL (no spinnakers, sorry Eroica) and is open to all TYC members, their yachts and crew and encourages first time racers. The Memorial Cup Race Trophy will be presented to the winner at the end of season banquet in October.
