SMYRNA Yacht Club's Brewer's Cup 2017

Friday October 27 - Saturday October 28

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. Boat owners can find the Notice of Race and Application form on the SYC website by clicking the hyperlinks below or by picking up an application from the SYC reception desk and returning it for the attention of Genie Flynn.

The easiest is Edgewater just to the south of SYC. For those entering the race, festivities will start at the SYC Tiki at 5:30pm on Friday 27th October. This is a good time for those requiring overnight dockage to turn up. The Registration table will be open and a Skippers Meeting will take place at 6:00 p.m. There will be more food on Saturday afternoon when the trophy presentation takes place around 4:00 p.m

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.

In 2017 we had Chamber of Commerce weather. Every boat that registered had checked in on Friday night and was out in the ocean on Saturday.

We had boats from Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Daytona Beach, Melbourne and Port Canaveral.

St. Augustine won the team trophy for a second year, with Smyrna Yacht Club managing a distant second place.
