FLYC Overnight Cruise June 20-21 

Before you pull that sailboat out of the water, join us for the annual FLYC cruise to New York cove.

Cruisers that need additional info on the route can meet at the FLYC clubhouse at 3pm. Boats will arrive at New York cove at various times and the raft up party will begin. Bring your own food and drinks along with water toys and entertainment. The club is not providing a poker prize this year, just sail out and enjoy the summer solstice on the water.

This event is a registered Summer Sailstice event and all participants are encouraged to register for a chance at some great prizes.

Boat campers need to register at the Marina Office before leaving their vehicle overnight.

The Katherine Eavenson Memorial Regatta is scheduled for June 13th, 2015.  It is open to all women sailors and will be raced in centerboards.  The venue for the Katherine Eavenson Memorial Regatta will be Folsom Lake.   Any women who wants to race in this regatta but doesn't have a boat, please contact me.  Joyce Johnson and myself will be sailing my new GREEN Lido 14.

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.
