Two weekends of sailing fun are planned for the Smyrna Yacht Club’s first Boatoberfest celebration, combining The Precision 15 Challenge on Saturday, October 13, followed by the Ultimate Michelob Cup downwind pursuit race on Saturday, October 20.
THE PRECISION 15 CHALLENGE _ The Yacht Club’s fleet of 4 wing-keel Precision15s will be raced by local Sea Scouts, members of the Halifax Sailing Association, and SYC Sailors in a series of “round the buoys” races. Six races during the morning and afternoon of Saturday, 13 October, will determine which area sailors earn bragging rights to this inaugural challenge. Each club will compete in a total of 4 races in the round robin. The course will be a triangle on the Intracoastal Waterway across from the Club’s Tiki Bar by Mile 847.5 -- Green Marker 45. Trophy presentations will be made to the winning club team, as well as an overall trophy for the best skip-per.
THE MICHELOB CUP _ A long-standing tradition, Smyrna Yacht Club has hosted the Michelob Regatta each October since 1999 attracting between 20 and 30 participating boats from across Central Florida and is a notable feature on the Indian River. This down-wind fun race is sailed between the Smyrna Yacht Club and Mosquito Lagoon on the Intracoastal Waterway and runs a distance of about 10 miles. The direction – either racing north or south -- is chosen to create a downwind race, which allows many of the boats to fly their colorful spinnakers. A staggered start is planned so that as many boats as possible will finish the race together – a great spec-tacle.
The Notice of Race and entry forms are available on line at www.smyrnayachtclub.com. Entry forms can also be picked up at the Smyrna Yacht Club (1201 South Riverside Dr., New Smyrna Beach, phone: 386-427-4040) front desk. Participating sailors do not have to be members of any club.
