Dear Lipton Cup Competitors,
I’m pleased to announce the return of the Lipton Cup for 2021, currently scheduled for Fathers Day Weekend, June 18-20. As we mentioned last year, we will be honoring all existing registrations. Please review the updated NOR with your club, and decide if you still wish to participate. Once you confirm your participation with me, you will be sent the official Charter Agreement from the St.FYC.
If you decide not to participate this year, please let me know so that we can refund your registration fee and give the spot to one of the clubs on the waitlist.
As we get closer to the date of the regatta, we will be sharing more details about the event, such as transportation and social activities.
We are also exploring using RaceQs for the event, as a way both to track the fleet but more importantly to broadcast the racing in our respective clubhouses and for those at home. Please encourage your sailors to learn more about this program and give it a try before the regatta.
We are looking forward to being able to once again celebrate camaraderie among the various Yacht Clubs that make up our Northern California sailing community.
