The 2012 Typhoon Nationals Is Gearing Up, With Boats Coming From As Far Away As Colorado.
Awareness and interest in the Typhoon Nationals is growing beyond the Chesapeake Bay area, with boats coming from as far away as Colorado. One sailor, now stationed in Afghanistan, is also following events.
Carter’s Creek is home to the world’s largest concentration of Cape Dory Typhoons with over 40 boats within a 10 sq. mi. radius and over 60 boats in the greater Northern Neck area.
“There is so much enthusiasm for Typhoon racing here on the Northern Neck that it’s logical for national events to take place on Carter’s Creek,” said Ron Mihills, Event Chairman and former RRYC Race Commodore. He continued, “We also are thrilled to again have John McCarthy as our Principal Race Officer.” John is a US SAILING certified Senior Judge, Regional Race Officer, Instructor and is the CBYRA Southern Bay Race Management Coordinator.
This event is a one-design non-spinnaker race for Weekender, Daysailer and Open Typhoons. Three races are scheduled to be held on Saturday June 23 and two races on Sunday June 24. The event kicks off on Friday June 22 at 17:00 at RRYC’s Club House, 100 Rappahannock Drive, Irvington, VA 22480. The Notice of Race (“NOR”), Entry Form and more information about the Regatta are available at the event blog at www.TyphoonNationals.blogspot.com.
About Rappahannock River Yacht Club The Rappahannock River Yacht Club (“RRYC”) was founded in 1936 on the shores of Carter’s Creek in Irvington, Virginia to serve the interests of local sailboat owners. In 1983, the Rappahannock River Sailing Association and the first Rappahannock Cup races were established. Since then RRYC has maintained a strong racing program. Proceeds from the Typhoon National Championship Regatta will benefit the RRYC Junior Racing program. To learn more about RRYC, click on www.rryc.org.
