Turkey Fry & Relay Race (5/1)

Posted on March 23, 2021 by Leave a comment


Turkey Fry Relay Race

The fun starts at 11:30 AM with the Competitor’s Meeting at the RCYC Bar for the Turkey Fry Regatta.  This is a “different type of bird” in that the sailors will be drawn onto teams and will compete over several hours in the Club IC-24s.  The goal is to complete the most laps in the shortest amount of time (like a relay race), meet new sailors and have a great time!

Turkey Fry Party

Next, at 6:45 PM, the TURKEY FRY itself will be at RUSH CREEK YACHT CLUB as a fundraiser to benefit Junior Sailing and the Rush Creek Education Fund.   We will provide over 150lbs of Scrumptious Fried Turkey!
