Two quick items.
First, Helen Quinby has the club’s Sunfish up and running! The boats look great and are ready to be checked out by YRYC members. Call Helen if you would like to use one at 804-832-5730. I’ll also be adding a web page about them soon. Thanks Helen!
The NYD race has been CANCELLED due to excessive wind. Continue reading
This year’s Moonlight Race was atypical in that it saw big winds, big waves and lots of boat speed. The only thing missing was the moon, which didn’t appear until after most boats had crossed the finish line. Steve Bowen and crew on Dream On put a big hurt on the spinnaker boats, and Bill Strauss and the Excalibur team did the same in the non-spin fleet. Continue reading
YRYC’s 6th Annual Moonlight Race will begin at 1830 at R2, at the entrance to Sarah’s Creek. If you’re interested in racing or crewing, please contact Dan Fox.
Barry Campell and the crew of Jade (left) won the 2006 Admiral’s Cup. This was the tri-fecta for Jade; now she has won three of the 10 Admiral’s Cup titles. Finishing 2nd in the non-spinnaker fleet behind Jade, was Bill Strauss’ Excalibur. In the combined PHRF A/B/C spinnaker fleet Mike Austin, Movin’ On, took 1st and Chuck Eldred on Gail Force finished 2nd. Seaford Yacht Club and York River Yacht Club team up each year to bring the Admiral’s Cup Regatta to the York River area racers.
Please join us for the Admiral’s Cup on August 12. The Admiral’s Cup is a sanctioned race which will be raced in two fleets — a spinnaker fleet (PHRF A, B, & C) and a non-spinnaker fleet (PHRF N and a cruiser class). This race has traditionally been a competition between YRYC and SYC. Last year YRYC took the Cup! This year the Cup will go to the winning boat in the largest fleet. Sailing instructions are attached.
