LOWCOUNTRY REGATTA: Approximately 100-120 dinghies from many southeast sailing clubs in a variety of classes. They will sail on one of three race courses. The famous BYSC Lowcountry Boil will be served on Sat. night. The regatta will be enhanced by the arrival of many Y-Flyer teams practicing for the championship.
Y-FLYER NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. The Y-flyer is an older dinghy design, 18’ LOA, weighing 500 lb and is flat bottomed with a hard chine. It is slooped rigged and raced by two persons. We should expect approximately 40 entries with the Junior Championship being held on Mon. and Tues., and the Y-Flyer Championship held on Wed., Thurs. and Fri.
During the Lowcountry Regatta there will be many arrivals and they will conduct sail measuring and hull weighing at the land hoist and probably in one tennis court. Please welcome our out-of- towners to this major regatta.
