NEWS FLASH........

OCTOBER 11, 2014

The Cape Fear Yacht Club sailors returned to the vast ocean race course last Saturday to perfect their ocean racing skills in spinnaker and non-spinnaker classes. Six boats raced on an absolutely beautiful day  The first race was two course laps of four miles as the crow flies.  Winds were out of the southwest starting at 8 knots increasing to 14. Currents were calm, but began running to sea for the second race of two and one half miles back into the Cape Fear River finish line at Marker 18 across from the city pier. Each tactician had their own special strategy for tacking during the race, but regardless of strategy, the racers were fairly close in competition all day.

The Cape Fear Yacht Club invites all interested sailors to come race with us. All club members are automatically eligible. Non-members are welcome to join all racing events at a slightly increased registration fee. Our goal is to have more racers on the water to enjoy sailing in a fun and safe environment.

Our next races are scheduled for October 25 in the Cape Fear River. Start time for the first race of the day is 10:55 AM in the general vicinity of the Southport City Pier. Come on out and enjoy the fun of watching the sometimes very entertaining start of the race.
