MYC Rum Racing

Melbourne Yacht Club organizes a PHRF pursuit race every other week in the area just south of the Melbourne Causeway.  Participants can choose from three fleets, Racers, Racer/Cruisers, and Cruisers.  When Daylight Savings Time is in effect, the races start on Friday evenings around 6:00 p.m; when it is not in effect, the races move to Sunday afternoons around 2:00 p.m.

Since the race is a pursuit format, all boats start in reverse handicap format on the honor system with the slowest boats starting first. MYC Rum Races do not have a race committee.

Races are open to all boats, not just MYC members.  Anyone interested in sailing is encouraged to attend.  If you don’t have a ride, one will be found for you.  No one is left at the dock!

For more information regarding MYC Rum Racing, contact MYC Fleet Captain Peter Fischel.
