LYRA Regatta to begin July 26th    
Tue, 15 Jul 2014

The annual LYRA Regatta, which will include the IRC North American Championships, will be held Saturday, July 26 and 27 for the Freeman Cup Race and carries on through August 3 at Ashbridge's Bay Yacht Club. This year the Freeman, although not part of the IRC Championships, will include a short-handed division.

As always, the Centennial Cup will provide a feeder race from Youngstown Yacht Club for the boats on the south shore to race to ABYC. All IRC boats are invited to participate, and even though this race won't count towards the NA's, it will count towards the LYRA Championship and the LYRA boat of the year. The IRC North American Championships begin in earnest on Friday, August 1, with the course racing. Needless to add, the IRC fleet will have a dedicated course, and if the weather co-operates, there may be middle distance race similar to the one held at the North American Championships two years ago at RCYC, which was a fantastic race for those who participated.

We'll just have to wait and see what the wind gods have in store for us. The Notice of Race and all information about the regatta are posted here and you will find a link to the registration page.

Don't miss what promises to be a great event!
