Rock Hall Yacht Club's Annual One-Design Regatta, and "Down the River Race"
will be held on June 19th, 20th and 21st, in Rock Hall, Maryland.
RHYC will again host three days of sailing/racing on the beautiful Chester River. Starting on Friday, June 19th w/ the "Down the River Race" starting in Chestertown Maryland at the Chestertown CC & YC, and finishing at RHYC. This is a "run what you brung" race w/ Hobies, A-Cats, Lasers, Windmills, Comets, (Traditional) Chesapeake Log Canoes .... competing. It is followed by party at RHYC that evening. The race is approximently 12-15miles long.
On Saturday and Sunday RHYC hosts a "Buoys" Regatta, the classes this year for Multihulls include a Hobie 14 (HCA-NA SANCTIONED !!!!!) One-Design Class, A-cat class, and "Open" Class.
This venue (in our opinion) is the finest small boat/dingy racing venue in the mid-Atlantic. RHYC is a excellent facility w/ a large grass field for boat assembly/set-up, a sandy protected beach for launching (we also do have two hoists if you wish to launch that way), plenty of space for FREE camping, a Bar/Resturant, bathouse w/ outdoor showers .... and a POOL!!!! (for the support crew). The race site is close by with-in site (1m?) from the clubhouse, protected waters, w/ good breezes and minimal powerboat traffic
For additional information/pics/directions, NOR and pre-registration please review our website: http://www.rockhallyachtclub.org
This event usually has approximently 80-90 boats competing w/ 30 of them being beach cats ....
The PRO for the Multi's course will again be Mr John Macielag.
Please note this will be the ONLY sanctioned H14 Class start in Div11 before the H14 North Americans in August. Also RHYC will be hosting a "Div 11 Hobie Points Regatta" on Sept 26 &27th. If you were not at last years Hobie Points Regatta at RHYC this is a perfect opprotunity to come and use the RHYC facility and familiarize yourself w/ this venue.
