2014 Mayors Cup,
August 16th

sliders_racing_3Huguenot Yacht Club invites you to join us for the New Rochelle/La Rochelle Mayors Trophy Regatta to be held on Saturday, August 16, 2014 at 2:30 pm.  The race will be followed by an Awards Dinner at the Huguenot Yacht Club.

This annual regatta uses a Pursuit Start format to make the starting less nerve-wracking and encourage participation by new or less experienced racers and families. With a Pursuit Start the slowest boat starts first and the faster boats start later based on how much time they owe the slowest boat over the 10-mile course. This way there is only one boat on the starting line at a time, unless there is another boat with the exact same rating.

If enough entries are received, both Spinnaker and Non-Spinnaker boats will be able to race in “Plus One” divisions, whereby a boat will sail with a crew limit of one more than the tens-digit of the boat’s LOA.  A boat with LOA of 20-29’ will have a crew limit of 3, a boat with LOA of 30-39’ will have a crew limit of 4, and a boat with LOA of 40-49’ will have a crew limit of 5. All limits include the helmsman.  The “Plus One” categories are intended to encourage participation by short-handed crews.
