The 2019 Firecracker Regatta, sponsored by Port Canaveral Yacht Club (PCYC), will accommodate two ocean races on Saturday July 6, 2019. It is our hope that participants will leave our beautiful facility, with a sincere appreciation of the hospitality extended by the membership of our club. This one-day regatta has been planned to promote competition and camaraderie, in an ambiance of yacht racing.
More information, including the Notice of Race and the entry form, can be found on the PCYC 2019 Firecracker Regatta event page.
Port Canaveral Yacht Club reports that the regatta that was scheduled for June has been canceled.
There will reportedly be another one scheduled for the July 4th holiday weekend. Details will be posted when they become available.
MYC’s Big Boat weekend is upon us and there are quite a number of boats needing crew. Racing is both Saturday and Sunday figure to be done by 3:30 each day.
If you are wanting and able to race please contact Dave Noble.
From Patti Miller:
Lake Monroe Sailing Association is hosting a regatta on April 12 – 14th. All lady Sunfish sailors are strongly encouraged to come race. Also, if anyone is interested in driving or crewing, there is a possibility of that as well. A pub crawl is planned for Friday night in support of the local Sanford businesses. The ladies race on Saturday with a dinner and raffle to follow. All proceeds go to the charity The Lifeboat Project, which is an organization that helps rehabilitate human trafficking victims.
The NOR and online registration are available on the event’s website.
Please spread the word and be a part of a great turnout to generate lots of support for a great charity.

Just in time for Saturday’s co-ed races.
J/24 Fleet 87’s annual regatta, which is normally held in October at Dragon Point, will instead be held this year on July 20th and 21st.

The Indian River Yacht Club RS Aero Rocket Regatta sailed on the Banana River in Cocoa, FL, adjoining Port Canaveral and the Space Center on March 8-10.
The launch point is excellent from the beach at Kelly Park at the NW corner adjacent to the Beachline Causeway. Excellent accommodations and dining are very close by in Cape Canaveral. The sailing area is superb – a great venue!
This event precedes Round 5 at Sarasota by 1 week to enable distance travelers to sail events on adjacent weekends for convenience and utility.
Blue skies, warm water, outstanding venues, great racing awaits you! See you soon!
Clinic – Friday 8th is a clinic by RS Aero 9 two time World Champion, Marc Jacobi.
IRYC Fleet Captain Mike Nulf has announced that the Dragon Point racing for 2019 will be split into three series, Winter, Summer and Fall. In conjunction with this change, series scoring will incorporate low score throw-outs to better accommodate boats that miss a single event during the series.
Previously announced race dates remain mostly unchanged, however an additional date has been added in October for both the Co-Ed and then Women’s fleet as the regularly scheduled Fleet 87 regatta was moved to July this year. The Women’s series race schedule for July will also likely be rescheduled pending review.
2019 IRYC Dragon Point Registration Form is now available. Fill it out and drop it off at the RC boat during January’s event or risk not being scored.
News announced by District 10’s new governor Robby Brown, distributed by Fleet 87’s Captain Peter Fischel, forwarded by his email tech wizard John Tworkowski:
“This year we (Melbourne’s Fleet 87) are trading dates with Miami so they can use our October date as a pre worlds event.”
The annual J/24 Fleet 87 regatta, normally scheduled in October, will instead by held on July 20th & 21st this year.
