Smyrna Yacht Club presents challenge race
The Smyrna Yacht Club will present the Ultimate Michelob Cup downwind pursuit race on Saturday, Oct. 20.
A long-standing tradition, Smyrna Yacht Club has hosted the Michelob Regatta each October since 1999 attracting between 20 and 30 participating boats from across Central Florida and is a notable feature on the Indian River.
This downwind fun race is sailed between the Smyrna Yacht Club and Mosquito Lagoon on the Intracoastal Waterway and runs a distance of about 10 miles. The direction - either racing north or south - is chosen to create a downwind race, which allows many of the boats to fly their colorful spinnakers. A staggered start is planned so that as many boats as possible will finish the race together - a great spectacle.
