The annual Ruth Beals Cup Regatta will be held on Saturday, October 9, at Lake Pleasant. This is a PHRF distance race honoring AYC’s founder Ruth Beals, herself an incredible sailor, businesswoman, sailboat salesperson, Clairol model, and adventurer. The tradition continues – skippers must be women (no restrictions on crew). Registration is now open and Race Documents are available below.
The day will start with a voluntary (not required, but recommended due to expected course changes this year) Skipper’s Meeting at 8AM at Spinnaker Point. First warning will sound at 9:30AM.
Defending champion Alexia Lorch (Santana 20 “Watercolors”) is the skipper to beat this year. Last year, we fielded 10 boats competing for the trophy – let’s drive for even more boats this year.
I’m looking forward to seeing all of you out there! If you have any questions, please contact me.
