Sunday, Oct 23 – Commodore’s Cup Race

Cap off a brisk, eventful sailing season with the annual Commodore’s Cup Race! This race is open to all members with a PHRF-rated boat (sorry, Lasers and Sunfish). After careful consultation with our Commodore, this year’s event will feature a new course. With a favorable forecast – westerly winds around 7 mph, sunny skies, temps in the low 60s – the course will also  be a little longer than usual, so we’re starting a little earlier. Details at the skipper’s meeting
