AYC Weekend Regattas for Optimists, Sunfish, Lasers, and 420s

The Club organizes seven competitive weekend intraclub regattas for Optimists, Sunfish, Lasers, and 420s during the summer sailing seasons. AYC sailors of all ages are welcome to participate. Patrol boats are on the water so that sailors with all levels of experience can practice and develop their sailing skills. Awards are given separately to Adult and Junior divisions.

Five of these weekend regattas are part of the “AYC Summer Series” that are the basis for coveted Club Perpetual Awards announced on Family Night based on overall participation and performance in the Series. Sailors’ families are invited to watch all races from the Club patio then gather with the sailors for a lunch or snack during the awards presentation following each event.

The intraclub weekend regattas planned for 2023 are: The Memorial Day Regatta; the Independence Day Regatta; the Past-Commodores’ Regatta; the Pizza and Ice Cream Regatta; the Pirates’ Regatta; the Commodore’s Regatta; the Mothers & Fathers / Old Timers’ Regatta; and the Labor Day Regatta. Dates and start times for those events will be published in the 2023 AYC Notice of Race for Weekend Regattas.

In addition to the competitive intraclub regattas, the Club also organizes non- competitive sailing events like pre-season sailing and the Twilight Sail and Poker Regatta. Those event dates and start times will be included in the Club
calendar. Please contact Fleet Captain Fleet Captains Linda or Joe Loeper (Lindaloeper@verizon.net and joeloeper@verizon.net) for more information.
