Schooner Trophy Race


July 4

Come on down to the Club and celebrate our National Independence Day, PYC style! Sunshine is on the menu 🙂 12noon to 6pm. The Kitchen Crew is cooking out on the grille— burgers, dogs, 3 different salad and chips. Grab your meal before you head out on the boat to race or hangout at the Club all day, before the Portland fireworks kickoff at 9:30pm. Dress is optional: Red, white and blue! (Please note, DiningRoom minimums do not apply to Club events.)

The Schooner Cup Trophy Race starts at 1pm. This ‘white sails only’ race (which means no spinnakers) allows families with less experienced crew, to participate. The course rounds government marks and your sailing instructions will provide a chart and the scoop. A PYC member will be awarded the PYC Perpetual Schooner Trophy and there will be prizes for the top 3 finishers. The race entry fee is $20. Schooner Race Officer, Doug Coyle, will be posting the notice of race and sailing instructions on soon.
