Camellia Cup Regatta - It's Unique

The Camellia Cup regatta is distinctive not because it has been held for 49 years, nor because took its name from the Sacramento Camellia Festival, not even that for two decades it was one of the largest regattas in the country, attracting over 200 boats consistently and peaking at 350 entries.  

No, several regattas can make similar claims. What makes Camellia Cup distinctive is because it is one of the few regattas with an "overall" winner.

In most regattas, individual trophies are given to the top finishers in each class and perpetual trophies for major classes of boats (e.g., keel, centerboard, and multihull), but at the Camellia Cup, all boats also compete for the title of overall winner.  

This honor goes to the skipper with the best sailing performance over the two days of the regatta. This is usually the sailor with many or all firsts in one of the largest fleets, enshrining her or him on the Camellia Cup's perpetual trophy, a large silver bowl.

Camellia Cup's scoring system encourages one-design sailing and large fleets. Typically, boats under 25' compete, including: Wavelength 24s, Catalina 22s, Santana 20s, Thistles, Day Sailers, Vanguards, FJs, Lido 14s, Banshees, Lasers, and Hobie Cats.

This year, the Folsom Lake Yacht Club is instituting a new tradition, made possible by ISC Racing, a prime sponsor of the regatta.  Fleet winners will have their 'first place' victories embroidered on commemorative windbreakers.  Similarly, the overall winner’s windbreaker will display that they were the 'Camellia Cup Champion'.

2015 Membership Meetings 

We have a new home for all of the 2015 Membership meetings. All of the 2015 meetings will be held at Round Table Pizza, 2793 East Bidwell in Folsom. They have a good size room with a 45 person capacity and good food options making life easier for our wonderful hospitality director. Start sending in your ideas for guest speakers, I know a few people took some interesting sailing trips recently to Baja and the BVI's which would be fun topics to share.

Let Us Know! 

One of this issues the club faces when putting on an event is knowing how many people might attend.

A perfect example of this is the Steele Cup regatta scheduled for 8/16.  We might get 5 banshees or 25 (ok, maybe 15).  And we might get 3 Lido 14's or we might get a whole bunch.  We really don't know.  And not knowing makes it very difficult to plan.  How much food & drinks do we bring for the potluck?  How many (expensive) trophies do we need to purchase?

To help us figure these things out, the website now has a new feature which I call Let Us Know!

You can get to it from the FLYC home page (look at the left column) or the events page (look at the top).  When you get to it, you will be able to select an event and indicate that you are planning to attend, and you can also see who else has said they are planning to attend.  Just enter your name (or to be sneaky, your initials) and your boat type (if its sailing event) and then click on the button.  The list will be instantly updated any your entry will be at the bottom.

Just to be clear, you are NOT committing to be there rain or shine.  Nobody will hold it against you if you do not come.  It's just a way for us to gauge how many people might be attending the event.

Let us know what you think about this feature, and if you have any suggestions to make it better.

New Kayot Policy 

We have a new club policy when operating the Kayot.

The Kayot MUST be backed entirely out of the fairway and not turned until it is well clear of all other vessels in the marina basin. 

If you are not comfortable operating the Kayot, please let the Vice Commodore know well in advance of your assigned RC date.  You can be given instructions or another operator can be found.

Thank You!
