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!

    What better way than sailing by the full moon! The next full moon is approaching and so is the Moonshine Pursuit Regatta.  Get all your running lights in operation for the evening sail. 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 PM.

Fundraising teams are now being formed. Teams can be affiliated with a specific boat, fleet or group of individuals. We are also seeking both individual and corporate sponsorships. All funds will go directly to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
