The Henderson Harbor Yacht Club and the Crescent Yacht Club host the Summerville Memorial on alternate years.
Summerville was avid racer on the eastern shore. In the early 60's he
was Fleet Captain of Lightning fleet 225 at HHYC. He was also very
active with the Dragon class (previously an Olympic class boat) owning
US 62 and competing as a member of the Crescent Yacht Club, which had a
competitive fleet of Dragons. Later he competed around the lake with his J35 "Summerwind".
Skip instilled a love of sailing with his family including his wife, Janet, Preston, Jessie, and Amy.
In 2019 the regatta will be hosted at HHYC on September 14th. We are hoping you will go and race with members of the HHYC and CYC.
The race will consist of three course-races with an awards dinner to follow. The Summerville Regatta is the third race in the three race series that will determine the Eastern Shore Boat of the Year. In order to be eligible to win this great honor, you must race your boat in all three Eastern Lake races, which include:
Skippers Meeting: 9:00 am
First start: 10:30 am
