  • HYC Regatta Results/ From Ross Cudlitz HYC Race Committee Chairman

    The HYC Regatta was held last Saturday (June 30th) as part of the Gulf of Maine Ocean Racing Associations’ series. It’s a fun and interesting pursuit race format that provides a staggered start and always keeps the HYC race committee on their toes!

    The wind at noon was very light but as predicted strengthened to 10-12 knots to make it easy for the fleet of 22 boats to finish the 8-mile course. The course started from Mosers and went out to Whaleboat, then down and around Lower Goose then back to finish at Mosers. Many HYC members and several Casco Bay Yacht Clubs participated. There were also many spectator boats.

    Bill and Mary Foster along with Peter Gerquest provided a great race Committee and Huge Thank – You!  Post race Bill Ginn provided fabulous appetizers and dinner including lasagna, salads and fresh strawberry ice cream sundaes for desert feeding all the skippers and crew. For our sailing thirst we wish to Thank Gritty’s for two kegs of their finest beer.

    We certainly would like to increase the participation every year. So come out and join this race next year. Enjoy a day on the bay with friends. This race is designed for everyone. Whether you are out for a family race or serious competition, this race has it all.
