45th Annual Ticonderoga Race
Saturday, June 2, 2018
Registration BBQ will take place at Yankee Marina on Friday June 1 between 6:30 and 9:30 pm. All sailboats on Lake George are invited and encouraged to participate. The Ti Race is a fund-raiser for the Y-Knot disabled sailing program at Camp Chingachgook. Please help out by seeking donations from family, friends, and corporations to help support Y-Knot Sailing. The registration fee of $20 gets you into all scheduled Corinthian races and an end-of-year party. Donation checks can be made out to “YMCA / Y-Knot Sailing.” The entry fee will be waived for any Y-Knot boats that participate in the race.
All competing yachts in all fleets will be required to take their own time at the finish and report to Kyle Lavoy. Contact Kyle via VHF on channel 66 or by phone at (518) 796-9428.
Open to all sailors on Lake George, the Lake George Ticonderoga Race consists of four fleets. A short “Sprint” race, a separate Martin 16 fleet, and three long-distance races. Any sailboat is welcome in the Sprint race; longer races have specific requirements for boats and safety equipment per the NOR. All fleets are scored using the PHRF Time on Time scoring system. Results will be posted on LakeGeorgeRacing.com
Start time for all fleets is 9:30 am in front of Yankee Boating Center.
The Martin 16 fleet will have a separate start after the main fleet, and will round Dome Island as a mark and sail to a finish line in front of the YMCA Camp Chingachgook docks.
The Sprint race (Blue Fleet) course will be determined by the Race Committee, depending on the weather, and will be a course of approx 8–16 miles, typically rounding Dome Island as a mark.
The Multihull Race (Red Fleet) uses a government buoy at the north end of the lake as a turning mark for a distance of about 45 miles.
The Monohull Non-Spinnaker Race (Yellow Fleet) rounds Gull Island near Hague for a distance of about 35 miles.
The Monohull Spinnaker Race (Green Fleet) uses a government buoy at the north end of the lake as a turning mark for a distance of about 45 miles.
Awards are given in all fleets. The winning skipper in the Monohull Spinnaker (Green) Fleet is awarded the Brodie Cup, a perpetual trophy named in honor of Bob and Sheila Brodie of Yankee Boating Center, longtime supporters of the Corinthians and of sailing on Lake George.
The Ti Race is once again a benefit for the Y-Knot Sailing Program. So join us for a weekend of fun and camaraderie, and test your sailing skills in the only long-distance race on Lake George!
