CGSC Annual OD Regatta NOR and Registration

October 1st and 2nd, 2016



Lime Cup skippers,  Thank you all for participating in this year's 50th annual Lime Cup Regatta weekend.
The jury hearing for redress last night was hours long and we apologize for making you wait so long for the results. 
Dealing with protests and redress requests is certainly not a fun part of our sport.
I hope that extending the free daiquiri's for an extra hour while you were forced to wait somewhat eased the pain.
The result of the jury hearing is that redress is denied to the boats requesting it. 
The scores for Saturday and Sundays races as posted online are official. 

However, the cumulative scores as posted on the website are not correct.

The program does not combine the corrected times for both races properly, so Click here for the overall combined scores.
Lime Cup trophies will be awarded following the BBYRA race next Saturday at Biscayne Bay Yacht Club.  If you cannot attend the trophy presentation, winning skippers can pick up their trophies at BBYC during regular club hours after Saturday.
Thank you all again for helping make this race a success, and we hope to see you again on the water soon.    ~~Fair Winds~~    Ken Batzer, Lime Cup Race Chairman
