Rockland Community Sailing and Rockland Yacht Club Need Boats and Skippers for Fundraising Youth Keelboat Race, August 15
Come join the 3rd Annual Rockland Yacht Club and Rockland Community Sailing Youth Keelboat Race and help raise money for youth sailing scholarships. Get Rockland Community Sailing youth students racing on keelboats. The buoy races are on Thursday, August 15, and operate like Tuesday Night races except every boat has at least one youth sailor from Rockland Community Sailing on board.
The $50 registration fee per boat goes towards Youth Sailing Scholarships at RCS. It’s a win/win situation – money raised for youth scholarship, more racing, new crew and racers for RYC.
Schedule as follows:
4:00 – Skipper’s Meeting/Youth sailors meet boats at Rockland Yacht Club.
5:00 - Races Start
7:00 – BBQ/Awards
The following boats have participated in past years: “Elvis Tuna” (David Jones), “This Guy” (Brian McClellan), “Dora” (Leila Murphy), “Badger” (Jim Cuthbertson), “AKC Hound” (George Emory), “Havoc” (Patti Spaulding), “Sans Culottes” (Robert Johnston), “Walkabout” (Doug Pope), “Moonbird”, (Fred Boursier), “Lyric”, (A’shop), “Gosling”, (John Blodgett), “Sea Glass”, (John Alexander), “Chaise Lounge”, (Jesse Henry), Sonar 23, (Pat DiLalla), “Quiet Tune”, (Mark Dierckef).
David Jones and KC Heyniger (who together started the Red Jacket Youth Regatta ten years ago) organized this Rockland race. KC and RCS Youth Instructors assign a youth sailor from the program to race on each boat. Race Rules will follow guidelines governing RYC Tuesday Night Series, located on the RYC website (http://www.rocklandyc.org/) under “Racing.” Exceptions will be noted by David Jones and/or the Race Committee prior to the start.
