LYRA TIER 2 COUNTER EVENT

SBYC is again hosting this annual regatta that is one of many quality regattas around Lake Ontario that act as a qualifying Tier 2 counter event for the LYRA Boat of The Year Trophy.  This regatta will help you on a great campaign towards this coveted trophy.  Have you heard of any of these major and regional regattas LYRA, EYC, Rochester Hospice, Oswego County Hospice, Scotch Bonnet Light Race, Sail Oswego, Genesee Yacht Club Women's and Youngstown CamAm.

REGATTA OVERVIEW

The expectation is to race 5 races on Lake Ontario, but it is not out of the realm of possibilities to have a few or all in the bay depending on the weather.  Racing will be on Saturday and Sunday and will culminate with an awards presentation Sunday afternoon on the west lawn next to the portico.
