The Christmas party will be held on Saturday Dec 14th @ 6PM. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for kids 12 and under. Tickets will be available at the door but please still RSVP with Rick Kerby via email.
Also note that the lighted boat parade will be held at 6pm on the same evening and should be visible from Slaughter County Brewery.
The race day started off with light wind and after about half the fleet didn’t finish the second race it was a toss up as to whether we should even have the third race, but just after the third race started the wind filled in and made for an exciting finish to the Fowl Weather Regatta. The points race was close with the winner being only one point ahead of second place. This year Matthew Gardner-Brown and the crew of Dulcinea took home the first place turkey, Congratulations!
A big thanks to Bob Rowe and T.J. for cooking the turkey and chili for the post race party and also thanks to everyone that brought pot luck items to share. I think all in attendance would agree that the food was superb.
And thus ends the 2013 racing season for WSCYC. Hope everyone has a great holiday season and makes it out for the 2014 racing season. The calendar of events will be updated before year’s end to show all our events for 2014.
As a result of the member vote at the Uncruise some minor changes have been made to the WSCYC Membership Application and Info 2014. The annual membership dues remain the same as last year. 2014 is fast approaching. Please take some time before the end of the year to renew.
A short start line and lighter wind that built throughout the day led to some exciting racing at this year Commodore’s Cup Regatta. Results are now available here. Congratulations to skipper Chad Stenwick and the crew of the The Boss for winning the Commodore’s Cup for 2013!
The Final Race of 2013 is the Fowl Weather Regatta and Turkey Cook-off coming up on November 23rd. What could be better than some great racing followed by a delicious meal? Hope to see you there.
Word is that Gary Seibert, skipper of Jabez, was the fastest Rum Runner this year. Thanks to Cathy and Jerry for hosting.

The weather was near perfect, warm and breezy, for the first September Series Race where The Boss dominated with a division and overall win. The wind was not cooperating for the second September Series Race and Tantalaus, the first to cross the finish, was 2 minutes after the time limit so all boats were scored DNF. The third race had a touch of rain and a nice breeze. Egress and Swan were the race leaders but Swan was disqualified for being over the start early. Congratulations to Egress for the overall win of week 3! The final week brought a nice breeze but a light turnout. Overall the Brownsville series was a great success.
Congrats to our series winners:
The Boss – 1st in Division 1 and 1st Overall
Tumble Home – 1st in Division 2
Cloud 9 – 1st in Division 3
