2016 Expressly for Fun

Don’t miss Huguenot Yacht Club’s signature race-cruise event, Expressly for Fun!

Sign up

Saturday and Sunday July 09-10

The Huguenot Yacht Club invites you to join us for the annual Expressly for Fun Regatta on Saturday and Sunday July 09-10.  This year we will be returning to the Northport Yacht Club.  Don’t miss out on the chance to race (or cruise) to Northport for a great party/awards presentation/Dinner/Junior Sailing Benefit Auction on Saturday. And then you get to stay overnight on your boat before you race (or cruise) back to HYC for more awards and a BBQ on Sunday.

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.

Click here for the Yachtscoring Race Entry. HYC members can either use the convenient PayPal payment option at yachtscoring, or can be billed on their club accounts. Just don’t forget to make your dinner reservations! Email racing@huguenotyc.com for reservations at Northport Yacht Club and Dining@huguenotyc.com for the barbecue at HYC.

For power boaters, we will also be repeating the popular Poker Run with this event – please join our racing sailors and families for a weekend of fun! Here is the Poker Run Entry Form Poker Run Entry Form, and additional information will be forwarded to entrants separately.

For all participants, mooring reservations are available at Northport on a first-come basis, with additional room for anchorage and launch service. All requests for moorings should be directed to Justin Scagnelli at racing@huguenotyc.com.

We will also hold our annual auction to support the HYC Junior Sailing Scholarship Fund.

There will be an assortment of items donated by club members as well as local businesses. If anyone has any appropriate items they’d be willing to donate for the auction, please let me know!
