We are happy to announce that our 2015 Olson 30 North American Championships will be held at Sodus Bay Yacht Club at LYRA 2015. LYRA stands for the Lake Yacht Racing Association and this regatta has a long and vibrant history on Lake Ontario. We are delighted to have our event under the LYRA umbrella.
Sodus Bay Yacht Club has it’s own storied history and the location itself is beautiful. All members are encouraged to visit the SBYC website to learn more. There are some links to accommodations on the LYRA page. The vicinity of the SBYC is a picturesque village on the shore of Lake Ontario and there are lots of good options for places to stay. It’s a big event so plan your accommodations well in advance.
The Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions will be posted here as well as on the official LYRA website. Olson 30 class members will be required to register for LYRA through the myyc.org portal. Note that this is not live at this time.
We will be racing with the R-class yachts and the 8 metres, so bring your cameras for some spectacular views on the water. The R-boats are beautiful and performance-wise are a suitable match for our Olson 30’s.
The course events are July 31-August 2 and our distance race will likely be Thursday July 30. We are exploring all options for the distance race component of our Championship. There are distance race components to the LYRA regatta but they are all quite long distances. More details TBA.
