The Piscataqua Sailing Associations Commodore’s Cup Trophy recognizes top performances in the five Summer Regattas, run by KPYC and PYC for the Racing and Cruising Class. These regattas for 2023 are:
|July 8||Ron Gibbons Memorial Regatta|
|July 22||Edmund Tarbell Memorial Whaleback Regatta|
|August 12||Dave Mowers Memorial Regatta|
|August 26||Single Handed Regatta|
|September 9||Lobster Double Handed Regatta|
Rules: Your best three regatta finishes will count toward the “CUP”. The three finishes must be in one class, Racing (spinnaker) or Cruising. The class is determined by your first race declaration by the yacht’s skipper. Once the yacht’s Fleet has been determined it cannot be changed for the remainder of the series.
There will be two throw-outs and the best three finishes will determine the final score. In the event of a tie the throw-outs will be counted to determine the tie breaker. In the event a tie still exists after all five (5) races have been scored the committee will resort to US Sailing Rule A8(1,2).
There must be at least three yachts in a fleet in order for the race to count as a Commodore’s Cup qualifier. If three yachts are not present in the class the race will be only scored for the majority class. The minority yachts scores will not count for that regatta toward the “CUP” or in any tiebreaker.
Yachts not racing in a minimum of three Regattas, results will not count toward the “CUP”. The end of the season final results for the qualified yachts may change with the unqualified yachts removed.
Entry Fee: There will be a entry fee of $125.00 to participate in the Commodore’s Cup Series Races. One Registration automatically registers the boat for the entire series. The fees for racing in two events is $75.00, and the fee for racing in one event is $50.00. Register on line for the The Clipper Tavern 2023 Commodore’s Cup Series (see below).
