The Ashburn Model Yacht Club (AMYC) will be hosting three Victoria regattas in 2009.
The first event is the AMYC Club Championship. The championship will be sailed at Lake Anne in Reston Virginia on June 28th. This is an AMYA black chevron event designed to ‘crown’ our club champion; however, it is open to all Victoria skippers–the more competition the better!
The second event is the 5th Annual Reston Farmers Market Open. The open will be sailed at Lake Anne in Reston Virginia on July 18th. This is an AMYA green chevron event that is open to all Victoria skippers. The event is sponsored by the Friends of Reston, who take very good care of all participants–just ask anyone who has attended in the past.
The third event is the 11th Annual Ashburn Pumpkin Regatta. The regatta will be sailed at the Ashburn Sports Pavilion in Ashburn Virginia on October 25th. This is an AMYA green chevron event that is open to all Victoria skippers. Over the past few years, the Pumpkin has followed the Region 3 Victoria Championship; however, this year we will host a Soling 1-meter pumpkin regatta the day prior. So, if you sail both classes of boats think about joining us for the weekend!
Ashburn and Reston are located in Northern Virginia, about 15 miles West of Washington D.C… The summer is a great time to visit the Nation’s Capital and the fall is a very colorful time of year as the foliage changes with the arrival of cooler weather. The venues are near perfect: Lake Anne has a boardwalk that runs the entire length of the course and the Sports Pavilion has a dock that extends out into the lake for easy course visibility.
You can find more information about the regattas and our club at our www website (www.ashburnmyc.info). On-line registration and payment is available.
We hope that you can join us at one, some, or all of the Regattas.
