Special Club Racing Events
LCYC Club Racing holds special racing events throughout the year. Check back on this page for more details as the event dates approach.
2012 First Things First New Year's Day Sail
Start the New Year off on the right foot, er tack and show up at LCYC for a New Year's Day Sail. The name of the game is informal with people setting sail anytime after noon, so there's no telling who you will run into. You are bound to catch up with long time acquaintances and who knows - you just might meet someone new as well!
Second Things Second New Year's Day Dinner
- Time: 5 - 6:30 at the LCYC Cluhouse
- Menu: Ham, Corn Bread and Black-eyed Peas
- Members please bring a side dish or dessert.
- Contact Margaret McGill if you can help in the kitchen.
Winter Long Distance Bay Race
- January 26th, 2012
- 10AM for 11:30 Start
Using a pursuit style starting format, participants will sail from LCYC around the lake, rounding buoys set in various bays. Given the drop in lake level, the race committee will take care to place buoys in navigable water. We will not be going up the river this year. Unique courses will be set for different classes of boats - check out all the details in the NOR posted below.
Post race refreshments and dinner for participants provided by LCYC with awards ceremony to follow.
- Monday, May 27th, 2013
Come out and join in on the fun. There will be one start in front of the LCYC Marina at 4PM. We will sail to the dam, down the length of the lake and back to the finish line in front of the LCYC Marina. Trophies will be awarded to fleet winners.
Moon Shine Pursuit Regatta
- Saturday, June 22nd, 2013
Starts will be staggered according to PHRF, with the highest rated boat crossing the start line first. The end result should be that all boats cross the finish line at the same time. The race will start off the Club's breakwater, proceed to the Dam and then down the lake to Cranes Mill and back...about 10 NM.
Branch Long Distance Race
An annual event that coincides with the 4th of July weekend, the Branch Long Distance Race is an LCYC tradition providing an opportunity to test your racing skills in a forum other than "around the buoys". Named for Honorary LCYC member Dr. Charles L. Branch, there is a perpetual trophy for the first keel boat to finish as well as trophies for each class. Expect a strong fleet of PHRF competitors and the potential for one design fleets of keel boats and board boats. This race is open to keel boats, board boats, catamarans and tri-hulls.
