SAVE THE DATE – May 27th LYC Summer Race Series

The first race in the LYC Summer Racing series- we had to postpone the May 12th evening race, so we have adding to the Memorial Weekend fun. Gather your crew or join as crew for a great event. The skippers meeting is at noon with the starting gun at 1:00p. The other dates are 6-2, 8-4 and 9-15.

SAVE THE DATE- May 27th LYC Raft Up- After the Summer Race 

The first club raft-up of the year will take place this Sunday (May 27). We plan to anchor somewhere along the south shore between the marina and the dam. Wherever it ends up, it will be the finish line for the Summer 1 race. We are planning to place a large LYC yellow cylindrical mark at the proposed raft-up spot. Those who wish to participate in the raft-up, but do not intend to race, may wish to arrive early and park near (but clear of) the mark to watch the racers finish. Racers may join the raft-up when they finish, probably sometime after 4:00 pm. Race committee and I will be monitoring VHF channel 68 to coordinate the race and raft-up. Be sure to bring a couple of fenders and some lines to connect up with the fleet. The club will not be furnishing food or drinks, so bring your own. If you bring too much, we will gladly help lighten your load. Water temperature is around 75-80 degrees F, in case you want to dip your toes. Peter indicated that he can provide shuttle service for any individual who cannot suppress the urge to abandon the fleet and get back to the marina early.


The calendar has been updated with the years events. Hopefully we will be adding some new events in the coming weeks.
