HHYC Typhoon Races
Fleet 225 Sunday Races
J/24 National Championship - Rochester, NY
Don’t end up on the Dark Side of the Duck! The Duck Island race is HHYC’s long distance race. There were many years when the best sailors amongst us have been stuck on the Dark Side of the Duck. Keeping this in mind, HHYC has tried to make the Duck more civilized. We have developed Plans B, C, and D just in case the wind is blowing the Duck off the pond, or well you know…the dark side thing again. We will follow up our race with a Cook Your Own Steak Dinner followed by awards.
Hosts: Art and Nancy Bronstein
It’s time for the Women of the Club to unite!
Join us for the fun and competition of the Women’s Challenge Cup. The format for the races this year will be a white-sails medium course race in the Typhoon one design fleet. The Typhoons are a fun, easy to sail boat that have rapidly grown in popularity at HHYC.
There are two series of races presently scheduled for this year. The skipper must be female. Trophies will be awarded for the winner and the best crew! Remember, the skipper is always right!
The Race will be open to all HHYC participants.
The Henderson Harbor Yacht Club and the Crescent Yacht Club host the Summerville Memorial on alternate years. Skip Summerville was an avid racer on the eastern shore, competing with his J35 "Summerwind". Skip was instrumental in bringing US Sailing to Association Island and worked tirelessly to advise and oversee its reality for Eastern Lake Ontario leading up to the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. At the Olympics, Skip and his wife Jan worked at the Olympic venue in the sail measurement assignment, and their daughter Jessie was named Chairman of the Tornado Class Trials.
In 2019 the regatta will be hosted at HHYC on September 7th. 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. Remember that 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:
Registration fee: $20 U.S.
Skippers Meeting: 9:00 am
First start: 10:00 am
The U.S. Sailing Rules of Racing applies to all competitors.
