AYC Inaugural Events Around the Corner
Linda Ambrose, Regatta Manager
Later this week we will host the first Annapolis YC 3-2-1 Invitational with teams from around the US competing in both team and match racing disciplines. We are looking forward to hosting competitors from Newport Harbor Yacht Club, New York Yacht Club, Fishing Bay Yacht Club, “The Rhodies” from Ida Lewis and Bristol Yacht Clubs, as well as our neighbors from Severn Sailing Association in addition to AYC’s Interclub Team Members. We want to thank our presenting sponsor Barbados Tourism Marketing, Inc., for their support as well as our VIP sponsors: David A. Morrow-Maritime Insurance International, Lessans Praley & McCormick P.A., Herman Born and Sons, and The General Ship Repair Corporation. In addition to the sponsors mentioned above we have event partners who will certainly make the social side of things more enjoyable thanks to the support of Mount Gay Rum, Jackson Family Wines, and Forward Beer. The regatta will be sailed just outside of Annapolis Harbor, Sep 13-15, so come out and watch if you can and root on Team AYC! To follow the event, click here.
