We are an organization devoted to having fun on the water with friends. We race sailboats, cruise and party. What's not to like? There aren't any stuffed shirts in our club; any of our members will help you out if you need a hand dropping a mast or installing a fitting.

Labor Day Weekend at Sarah's Creek

America/New York

Ahoy all, Let's have a Labor Day Weekend Cruise.
OPCYC was trying for a Smithfield Station and Warwick Yacht Club cruise destination but after doing a little scouting up the Pagan, Sue and I found that it's just too shallow. So...since things didn't work out on the 4th due to inclement weather, lets go to Sarah's Creek for Labor Day!

The next race on the schedule and the last race before the Tri-Service is The Thimble Shoal Challenge. Start time is 10am at Mark Y (R2 off Buckroe Beach). As usual we'll plan to finish around 1pm and meet at the clubhouse for the after race party at 3pm. I encourage everyone who plans to race the Tri-Service Regatta next month to come out for this race. It's a great opportunity to get some practice for the big RACE.
