Other Water Activities

Planned Cruises

The SYC Cruisers plan several trips each year to include boaters, both power and sail, as well as landlubbers. Getaways are varied from weekend excursions to day trips, including various points of interest, other FCYC clubs & "Raft-Up" excursions.

A major benefit of boating as an SYC member is our reciprocity with the 35 other yacht clubs in the FCYC and free dockage for the first night at their excellent facilities.

Cocktail Class Wooden Boat Racing Association

The CCWBRA was founded in 2010 to encourage and organize racing in the Cocktail Class Runabout. Based on the out-board racer SKUA, an 8 ft. plywood skimmer designed in 1939 by Charles MacGregor, the Cocktail Class Runabout is an economical, easily constructed and exciting runabout. It is ideal for racing at all skill levels and ages.  

Although a young powerboat racing organization, the CCWBRA and its one-design Cocktail Class Runabout have received overwhelming enthusiasm and support from around the world. Boats are being built and raced in 33 states and 7 countries. We are sure they will engage all generations of your family and friends for many years to come!  

Since the 1990’s SYC has conducted the prestigious Lipton Cup sailing regatta and has since added The CCWBRA Governor’s Cup to it competitive racing offerings! SYC members who have built their own race boats to CCWBRA specifications gathered for their first invitational Governor’s Cup race at the Smyrna Yacht Club on August 23rd, 2014. This popular event continues to grow year after year, drawing interest from CCWBRA racers from many states to compete. SYC is looking forward to hosting the Governor’s Cup again early 2018. Stay tuned for details!
