Smyrna Yacht Club is promoting an even a bigger and better Lipton Cup Regatta. In 2014, the Lipton Cup Regatta will be a part of the Halifax River Yacht Club's Commodores Cup 10 race series. Fun loving sailors should reserve April 11th, 12th and 13th. There will be two races on Saturday located just off the beach at the end of Flagler Avenue, with a final race on Sunday.
This is the one sailing event in the southeastern United States where you have a chance to have your name engraved for posterity on a historic Lipton Cup Trophy. Most sailors know about the America's Cup and the several America's Cup challenges by Sir Thomas Lipton. They also know that he donated trophies in a number of locations around the world with the intent of promoting the sport of sailing. Such a historic trophy sits in the trophy case at Smyrna Yacht Club. April 12th through 14th will be the tenth consecutive Lipton Cup Regatta since its revival in 2004 and there is a place on the trophy base for you and the name of your boat, if you can compete and win. The competition will be strong, but the reward is priceless.
The 2013 Lipton Cup Team Challenge was won by Halifax River Yacht Club. The perpetual trophy will be kept by HRYC until their defense in the 2014 Regatta.
