All Racing


HYC Race Management Committee is looking for 2023 Volunteers!
Please fill out the Race Committee Interest and Availability Form by MAY 1.  You can check off the events with which you would like to help. There is something for everyone and every experience level. If you have never served on a race committee before, or you’re new to the club, that’s not a problem. To get the process started, Click HERE to complete the online form. Once you hit submit, your answers (and fate) will be in the hands of the Race Management Committee. We ask that you please complete the form no later than May 1. It will take time for the committee to review and process all entries and put together the teams for the regattas. It is our hope to have the majority of the season scheduled and assignments sent to the volunteers in time for the RC Jamboree on Saturday, May 13, so your quick response will be much appreciated. We hope you will be able to join the RC Team, whether for one event or  many, and in so doing, enjoy even more what promises to be another epic summer at HYC! Thanks very much for your consideration.

Join us at 5:00 pm.  Bring a life jacket!
