Sailing Instructions for Turkey Bowl Race: Turkey Bowl SI’s 2017
Message from Flag Officer Trophies Sue McAlpine:
In 1902, the Chester Yacht Club was incorporated and on October 7th we celebrate 115 years of sail boat racing filled with traditions, yarns and prestige. It is a long history, a good history that shall continue on.
There will be 23 trophies presented this season. First place and applicable second and third place keepers will be awarded. This year the keepers will be engraved with year, name of race and placement. The winners of the G’uvy Cup sponsored by South Shore Marine will have the first 4 placements awarded.
Please make every effort to attend the Awards Ceremony. If you are unable to attend, have a trusted representative to stand in your stead.
I look forward to seeing you.
Sue McAlpine, Flag Officer/Trophies
