KBYC has cancelled and will not re-run the regatta due to the designated search area and efforts of many to locate Trevor Moore, 2012 Olympic 49er who went missing late Thursday afternoon. His inflatable was found, but no sign of Trevor. Details are on the local news channels. KBYC Race Committee boats will assist in search efforts. Please contact Miami Coast Guard at 305-535-4562 if you know anything. If you have means to participate in the search tomorrow, Please come out. KBYC RC will be standing by on Channel 72.

REGATTA TIME IN ABACO
CLUB TO CLUB CHALLENGE!
This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the Regatta Time in Abaco's race week, July 3rd-10th in the Abacos of the Bahamas. The 2015 Regatta sponsored by Mount Gay Rum, is shaping up to be the most exciting regatta yet.
This year, the Race Committee has created a new trophy - the Club to Club Challenge - awarded for the overall best three scores from any three boats from a recognized club. This will be the inaugural year for this trophy, and any of the five BBYRA Clubs could take it home...but you can't win if you don't have the boats entered.
Solid, fun competition, camaraderie, parties and of course the beauty of racing through the Bahamian island chain. So, start organizing your club’s team(s) and make plans to join us in the Abacos this July!
For more information about the regatta, please visit www.RegattaTimeInAbaco.com.
View some thumbtabs of KBYC Annual Regatta, Unfortunately when you zoom in they lose focus. The actual pics are better, Am thinking of giving the PHRF and OD fleet captain CDs to share. Will keep you posted.
