In an effort to increase competition in the Halifax River Yacht Club Commodores Cup racing series, we would like to announce some changes to the traditional racing schedule. Attached is the 2017 Notice of Race which includes the race schedule at the bottom of page one. Please note that multiple races are scheduled for most days on the schedule. It is also important to note that some races will take place on Saturday and some will be run on Sunday.
Included in the Commodores Cup series this year (in addition to our local races) will be the Lipton Cup, Old Timers Memorial Regatta, and the St. Augustine Dash. Seven races are required to qualify for the Commodores Cup series. By including the events listed above, boats traveling to the Daytona Beach area from out of town will be eligible for entry in the Commodores Cup series.
It is expected the Lipton Cup and Old Timers Memorial Regatta will include three races each. Racers can compete in any of the other races listed on the schedule to complete the seven races necessary to qualify for the Commodores Cup. The Old Timers Memorial Regatta has been scheduled the week before the St. Augustine Dash to help the out of town boats meet the seven-race minimum.
Racers are encouraged to complete the attached application and return it to the Halifax River Yacht Club as soon as possible. Questions may be directed to Chris or Todd as listed below.
