The annual Ruth Beals Cup Regatta for women at the helm will be Saturday morning, October 27 at Tempe Town Lake.
Organizers Sheila Reed and Cindy Pillote say that the Skippers’ Meeting will be a 8am and the first warning at 9am. Racing will end by noon.
This annual regatta honors AYC founder Ruth Beals (history here) by requiring that the Capri 14.2 sailboats be driven by women, though a man can act as crew. There will be room for a dozen entries, using personally-owned boats or using one of the Arizona Sailing Foundation boats on a first-come, first-served basis.
There’s no charge for entry and there are actual, valuable prizes for the first three finishers. And breakfast for all.
