The winner of each race gets a really big trophy (for a year), a smaller trophy (that you get to keep forever and ever!) and flags are awarded as well.

While the emphasis is on racing, each race is a great social event as well.  Some folks come along just for the party.  If you want to experience the thrill of racing then come join one of our crews.  No experience required.  See our Events Calendar and Contact us today!

  2. The photo at the top was not take at this year’s Syronelle Cup event, but at the Rankin Regatta on the Magothy River in Maryland, September 2015. That’s my boat Rinn Duin #272 as Canada I, skippered by Marc DeCorte.

    Great pictures of the Syronelle event !

      Thanks for letting me know, Mike.
      If you don’t mind I’m going to leave the shot at the top of the page anyway.
      It’s such a great photo.
      I’ll put some details and byline to explain the image the next time I’m updating.

  3. The photo is by George Dinwiddie, and is on my computer desktop, and the cover of the Chesapeake Association’s Handbook.
    The other boat is Lanny Helm’s Windswept #562. We are ducking them and preparing to harden up and tack over them.
