Join the 10th Annual SIPPY CUP
This year, we're running the race backward - we'll start in Annapolis and finish in North East. Arrive early and view the Governor's Cup starts down off Tolly Point. You'll still have 45 minutes to move the 1.5nm up to our start. Come join us in August and help to make this the best Sippy Cup ever!
Friday Evening August 3rd 2018 - Saturday Afternoon August 4th 2018
This is an overnight regatta, held the same weekend as the Governor's Cup.
Two Fleets - Sippy Cup and Big Gulp. Sippy Cup Boats must have a PHRF rating of 200 or higher. Big Gulp boats must have a PHRF rating of 140-199. The small cost of a rating certificate goes toward supporting sailboat racing on the Chesapeake Bay and helps us compete fairly. You can learn more and apply for a rating or renew last year's rating at www.prhfchesbay.org.
Race Course - Green Can "1", approximately 1 nautical mile south-southwest of Hackett Point and 1.5 nautical miles west-southwest of Green Can "91" of the main shipping channel, south of the Bay Bridge at Annapolis - to - 4s Flashing Red "2" of the North East River channel, off Rocky Point.
Hosted by Walden Rigging, this is a "fun race" encouraging small boats and everyone else to experience the challenges and beauty of sailing at night.
Post-race party and awards at Hances Point Yacht Club in North East - HPYC does not offer dockage, so we recommend making slip reservations at one of several nearby marinas (see the Notice of Race below for marina information) or anchoring out. A pontoon shuttle will operate on a schedule to ferry participants to and from shore. Live music provided by NorthEast Corners! Dinner is included and beverages will be available for purchase at the HPYC bar. You're welcome to bring your own specialty dessert or appetizer to share. Let's celebrate our overnight sailing accomplishment together!
