Double Double Regatta
The Race will NOT be held tomorrow 4/14 as scheduled. Significant storms are predicted to arrive during race time and 40 mph gusts are expected all morning ahead of the storm. We felt these conditions were not in the spirit of the Double Double Regatta and posed a safety risk to double handed crew.
We have already started planning a make-up date and will announce the details soon.
DOUBLE-DOUBLE REGATTA, SAT. APRIL 14TH - FIRST TIMERS WELCOME
Percy Priest Yacht Club cordially invites you and your crew to attend the Double Double Regatta on April 14th at 8:00 AM. The regatta will be held on J. Percy Priest Lake in Nashville, Tennessee. Land based activities will be held at Hamilton Creek Sailboat Marina.
The first “double” is for double handed. Each boat crew is to be made up of a captain and a single crew.
The second double is for Jib and Main only. We will be leaving the spinnakers in the bag.
Our first Double Double was last year and was an absolute blast. It was a fun double handed race for our experienced race crews. And it was our first ever regatta to include the Bee Fleet. If you have ever thought about enjoying a regatta with your boat, but weren't sure about doing it, then the Double Double is for you. Join the Bee Fleet in this race! We will have a special course, coached start and on the water tips to take the pressure off.
(If you are interested in being an on the water or ride along coach for the Bee Fleet, please contact Fred Bartrom).
The dinner following the race will be our first "pot-luck" of the year. Racers, spouses and other PPYC members bring your favorite dishes and lets celebrate the day together!
