2016 Racing Reports:

The 2016 spring racing season included two SYC Pedlows and the first half of the HRYRA competition.  The July 3rd Pedlow was canceled due to lack of wind, so the scores remain the same from Memorial Day.
Nyack Wednesday night races have been wonderful.  The night usually includes almost 20 boats, with five in spinnaker Division A and 15 in Division B cruising.
July 16 is the Joe Naar one design race here at SYC and the HRYRA Hudson River Women’s Challenge Cup is on August 7th in Haverstraw.
The second half of HRYRA racing begins in September, and of course that brings the Shattemuc Regatta.  If you want to try at least one HRYRA race this year, then choose the Shattemuc Regatta September 10-11.

2015 Racing Reports:

The 131st Shattemuc Open Regatta took place on September 11-12.
This was the major cruising sailboat race event of the season at our club. We hosted 18 boats from the clubs in HRYRA. This exciting weekend also included the Margaritta BBQ dinner on Saturday evening, well attended by both racers and Shattemuc members, and the awards ceremony on Sunday afternoon.Saturday morning did not look at all promising for sail boats — almost dead calm at 1100 that forced the committee to postpone racing in the hope that breezes would develop. Sure enough, after a bit of light rain around noon time, a nice southerly filled in just allowing all divisions to get in two short races. The breeze held for Sunday, even strengthening a bit and providing good racing. It was good to see a slight increase in the number of competitors from Shattemuc this year, including Jurassis Dragon, Zoom,Pentimento, Freya, Mayhem and Surprise II.You’ll find a link to the regatta results here and many photos here. Also read the article in the September Masthead.
Pentimento wins 2015 Pedlow Cup! The last races of the 2015 Pedlow Cup were held on September 6th.   A light Southerly breeze filled in just in time to start the first of two races.  Jurassis Dragon had a superb day winning both races but Pentimento prevailed in the overall series score.  See results ­here  (insert hyperlink). A new racer, Surprise II, with Sam Ofsevit and crew joined the racing!
The last Pedlow Cup race of the 2015 season is coming up on September 6. Don’t miss this great opportunity for a fun race experience. Click here for information.
The 131st Shattemuc Regatta opens the Fall series of HRYRA races on the weekend of September 12-13. For more information and  on line registration, click here.

Pentimento crosses Loonsong

Pentimento wins two Pedlow Cup races on July 4th.

A NE breeze filled in just in time to start the first race at 11:00.  The breeze held and allowed a second slightly longer race.

Along with the wind came rain showers so everyone who remembered to bring them along got to try out their foulies.

Thanks to Race Committee Mick McGuire and Ben Goldsmith. Results and all other information can be found in the usual place on our racing page.
