The 2019 Bikini Cup is just a couple of weeks away. Saturday June the 8th to be exact.
This will be the 41st, no wait the 40th, no wait that was last year, right? Well, “yes and no”. Last year claimed to be the 40th but after looking at some old bikini cup shirts, it was noticed that we may have gotten a little premature in our declaration. Somewhere in the last 10 years we got a year off, at least that was what a review of T-shirts and dates would suggest. (I’m a sailor, not a mathematician) So, to set the record straight we are calling this year’s event GFLYC 40th Annual Bikini Cup, The Sequel!
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to redo a classic event sponsored by GFLYC and DMS Management Co. (Dwight, Mary, Sam) . If you didn’t get to participate last year or maybe didn’t do quite as well as you wanted, here’s your chance to improve your standing on our 40th Anniversary event.
This event is open to any GFLYC member who has a boat on the lake. Non members can participate at $50.00 per boat. However, the one caveat is the boat must me skippered by a female. No age limit and no “bikini” is required, although Sister Sonny might make a special appearance as in years past. (Just a warning, viewer discretion is advised, not suitable for young children).
This is a super fun event and we are expecting a record turnout this year as we have several new members who are planning to participate. We’ll do an Olympic Triangle course with additional windward /leeward legs. (Course maps will be provided). Skippers meeting at 11:00 AM with racing to start at 1:00. An extra long starting line will be set to give plenty of room for everyone to have a good start and little to no stress. Wine, Water and Beer along with dinner will be provided at no charge to yacht club members and crew. The Bikini Cup Perpetual Trophy will be awarded to the 1st place winner along with special awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Spinnakers are allowed, non-spinnaker boats will be credited 15seconds per mile. Must declare before the race if a spinnaker will be used.
Commemorative T-shirts are available on a first come, first served basis for 20.00 each. Small, medium, large, X large and XX large. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your shirts.
RSVP to Dwight Segraves text: 501-258-8211 or email email@example.com . Would be very helpful to know how many people will be attending the dinner and awards ceremony. Want to make sure we have plenty of food and beverage for all.
