Matagorda Cup Series

For the 2015 season, PYC will initiate a series of four cruising sailboat races.

Spring Fling to the ICW
Ladies at the Helm Regatta
Half Moon Light Regatta
Fall Regatta

Boats will be handicapped using PHRF ratings maintained by PYC.  There will be one "throw out" race, therefore each boat will be scored on the cumulative score of three out of four races.

The Matagorda Cup will become a perpetual trophy passed along each year to the winning boat and crew.  Each year's winner will be recognized at the December Christmas party.

The regattas are casual, friendly competitions for members of Palacios Yacht Club.  Few rules and low stress.
