2019 AYC Club Championship

September 21 - 22, 2019

Come cheer on our top sailors as they compete for the Club Championship in 2 days of competitive sailing!  Individual awards will be made after the last race, so please come by and congratulate the top teams as they receive their awards (timing is dependent on sailing conditions).  Permanent awards will be made at the Club's Award dinner.  Look for further information on motor boats that may be available to take you out on the water for a closer viewing!

Everyone is invited to join the competitors on Saturday evening (Sept 21) for a fun, casual dinner, featuring Lavon's famous Beef Brisket (and a vegetarian option).  Dinner is free to the competitors and race committee, and just $10 for everyone else ($7 for children 12 and under).  Registration is open Sept 8 to September 17.  

Competitors and Race Committee - please use the link above to register for Saturday dinner for yourselves and indicate the number of extra meals desired.  Lunch will be available on Saturday, and is free for you, but $6 for your lunch guests.  Please register using the same registration link (above).  Snacks will be available at the point after the last race on Sunday. No registration is required for that.
