2016 Commodore's Cup Series
BHYC enjoys a full and fun racing season. Summers in Maine are short, but we get the most out of it that we can.
2016 Commodore's Cup Series:
The Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club's Commodore's Cup is open to all interested racers. Come out and race with for this fun series.
The Commodores Cup takes place on three Sundays, June 26, August 7 and August 21. Rather than the common Windward – Leeward courses, these races may explore different areas including Linekin Bay, Mouse and Burnt Islands and more. The Commodore’s Cup for 2016 will likely feature five divisions: PHRF Racing, PHRF Cruising, Boothbay Harbor One Designs (BHOD), J/22, and a new J/80 class is planned. Current plans call for the Cruising class to sail a pursuit race while the other classes will have standard starts. BHYC members’ scores over the two day event will be totaled for the Commodores Cup overall trophies, but all participants will be competing for the daily trophies. The Commodore's Cup races will also be scored as GMORA race days for the Boothbay Region and overall trophy scoring.
Boats should provide a current PHRF-NE certificate. Boats without valid or provisional racing handicap certificates will be handicapped by the BHYC Race Committee based on PHRF-NE handicaps of similar boats, their knowledge of the boat and past results.
Copies of the NOR and Sailing Instructions will be found in the BHYC Casino.
