Old Trophies Race

December 26, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm AST

HobThe year begins with the “Old Trophies Race” held on the last Sunday in December. It is sailed as a pursuit race three times around the James’ Islands. Winners are rewarded with old trophies supplied by competitors.

Annual Old Trophies Race–Skippers’ Meeting at 1 pm, First warning at 2pm.

This race is three times around Great St. James Island — first time counterclockwise, second time clockwise, third time your choice! IC-24’s, and PHRF rated sailboats are welcome!

Here’s where to find the NOR and Sailing Instructions.

This year, for the first time ever, the IC-24s will be equipped with 3 different jibs! There will be a full jib, an intermediate jib, and a “jib-let” (aka 420 or baby jib) onboard. (The jib-let is a mid-sized jib that we designed this past year for STIR, and are breaking them out again for Old Trophies!) We will announce which we are using at the skipper’s meeting.

Prizes will be awarded from donated old trophies, so please bring an old trophy to donate to the cause. Members with Boat Access reserve your boat to participate.

There will be a party and prize giving at the club following the race.

Members only.
