The HMYC hosted our last regatta of the year (EC12) on October 12-13. Results can be seen under the “Regattas/2019/EC12” tab.
We have moved the marks to our Spring/Fall sailing venue at Bethany Veterans Memorial Park. We still follow the fall sailing schedule but there are no series points. The spring and fall are for good competitive fun and honing your sailing skills. There is always help available on most race days. Remember that you do need a Bethany parking pass at the park which cost $50 that includes both the fall and spring season. So come on out and join in the fun! We typically have the best winds in the spring and fall so we have some great racing/sailing in the off season.
Well folks, that’s the end of the 2019 racing season at Hop Brook Lake. All the summer series final results can be found under the “Racing Series/2019” tab. We had two great final days of sailing with good wind this weekend with the last monthly EC12 racing on Saturday and the last Star & DragonFlite95 racing on Sunday. The Army Corp of Engineers celebrated the 50th year anniversary for Hop Brook Lake at the lake today (Sept 8th) of which the HMYC participated by talking and demonstrating RC sailboat racing. We even had a few takers that tried our DF95s! The rangers gave the club a appreciation certificate (see below) for our contributions to the event. The Army Corp has been very good to us at Hop Brook and we greatly appreciate their support!
