ACTIVITIES / SCHEDULE

The Club has a Spring, Summer and Fall Series. Each Series is comprised of 6-7 race days.  The dates for racing can be found below. On each race day we strive to race 7 races with one throw out.  This year we will have (18) race dates for our DF95 class, and (6) race dates for our Seawinds. In the Spring and Fall we race on Saturdays. In the Summer we typically race on Fridays in order to avoid heavy lake and facility use. Many of our members travel to Regatta’s in other cities. 



The 2023 Region 3 Seawind Championship Regatta will be hosted by the Greenville Model Yacht Club in Greenville, SC. The Event will be held on Lake Cooley in Spartanburg, County.  The Regatta will be held on September 30th-October 1 , 2023.  The NOR will be place on the AMYA site the week of January 4th-7th.   More information will follow on this site and The New AMYA site.
