The Charlie Bangs Memorial Apple-Blossom Race 

Charlie Bangs was one of the most loved sailors and racers at HHYC. Charlie passed away but his spirit lives on at HHYC. Charlie and his sturdy Cal 20, the Molly B, could be seen on the waters of Henderson Harbor almost every day in the summer. When Charlie was racing the Molly B it was often said “If you could see his sails on the horizon, he already beat you!” Charlie sailed his Cal 20 in many races; he was competitive and loved to win, but he was also one of the nicest people you could ever meet. Come celebrate Charlie’s spirit by participating in the race that bears his name.
