The 25th Annual Jerry Layton Regatta will be held Saturday, October 5th.
The event will begin with a skipper’s meeting at 10:15 am. Races will start at 11 am. Our usual format has been to enlist five Catalina 22s.
This year we will be using a variety of somewhat similar boats. We will be looking for five experienced TSC skippers and 15 crew members. Crew members need not be experienced or be TSC members. This format gives new sailors a chance to try racing. The Race Committee will assign crew and the order of boats to be sailed. Each skipper races on all five boats until everyone has competed on each of the sailboats. The crew stays with the boat for all of the races.
This is a fund raiser to help support and maintain our Race Committee boat. Skippers contribute $25 for the regatta and each crew member contributes $15.
We need five skippers. All sailors are welcome to compete.
We need 15 crew members. No experience needed.
We need volunteers for the Committee boat and for the two safety boats used to transfer skippers from boat to boat.
Racing should be finished by around 2 PM.
The Layton Regatta is offered in memory of Jerry Layton, former TSC Commodore. All income goes to support our pontoon boat, the Jerry L. Come join in this 20-year tradition. It is one of the really fun events of our sailing year.
