The 2018 Brewers Cup will take place on Saturday 27th October

The Brewers Cup is a downwind pursuit race with a staggered start for any and all sail boats that can navigate the Indian River. More specifically, the Brewers Cup is a downwind “FUN” race occurring between the Smyrna Yacht Club and Mosquito Lagoon, a distance of about 10 miles. The direction – either racing North or South -- is chosen to create a downwind race which allows many of the boats to fly their colorful spinnakers. The race will have a staggered start so that as many boats as possible will finish close together. This can be particularly exciting. This is probably the most spectacular sailing event of the year based on close quarter spinnaker competition.   

For more information, contact Genie Flynn at  Participating sailors do not have to be members of any yacht or sailing club.  There are two boat ramps within 1 mile of SYC. The easiest is Edgewater just to the south of SYC.

About the Brewer's Cup:

A long-standing tradition, Smyrna Yacht Club has hosted the Michelob Regatta each October since 1999 attracting between 20 and 30 participating boats from across Central Florida -- a notable feature on the Indian River. This is the fifth year of the new Brewers Cup sponsored by Smyrna Yacht Club. 



Boatoberfest starts on October 13th with our own Chicken Island Race. Other Clubs are welcome to come and compete and can use our Precision 15's if they wish.
The Old Men of the Sea/SYC Sailors Banquet will take place on Saturday 20th October.
Boatoberfest reaches its grand climax with the 5th running of the Brewers Cup on Saturday October 27th.
The Isles Challenge return match is scheduled for November.

The Spice Cup

The Spice Cup is a series of up to 12 races held on the first Wednesday of each month in the Ocean off of Ponce Inlet. If you would like to crew or experience a little sailing, meet us at The Tiki Bar any Wednesday at 9:30 am. We also welcome boats from other Clubs to join us in the ocean and to race with us.

SYC Sailors

SYC Sailors have 5 Precision15 boats, which they sail almost every Saturday, January through May. They have at least one pure fun day every month to give people a chance to see if sailing a small boat is for them.
