Tall Oaks Yacht Club Racing Announcement 2021

Message from the Race Committee Chairman; Steve Stallsmith

Greetings and I hope that everyone is getting their boats ready for another summer season.


We are planning another summer race season that will include six club races including the popular “Pursuit Race - Ladies Helm Race. The Challenge Cup Race will be run by the Windjammers this year with Tall Oaks hosting the post-race party on Sept. 25th at the Berkeley Island Pavilion.


TOYC Race Dates:

Saturday June 5 –      Shakedown Race

Sunday June 13 -       Race #1

Saturday June 26 -     Race #2

Saturday July 10 -      Race #3

Saturday July 24 -      Race #4

Saturday August 7 -   Race #5 – Youth Crew

Saturday August 28 - Race #6 – Ladies at the Helm Pursuit Race


Windjammers – TOYC

Saturday September 25 – TOYC hosts social at Berkeley Island


The cost for racing will still be $20.00 for the race season or $5.00 per race for TOYC Members and $40.00 for the race season or $10.00 per race for Non-Members. We are planning a practice or Shake-Down race on Saturday June 5th.


In addition to the club races, if you have your boat registered with PHRF-MA, there is a lot more racing that you can do. There is the Red Grant Regatta on Raritan Bay date TBD, the Leukemia Cup Regatta at Ocean City NJ date TBD, Sail Fest on Toms River September 11 and Toms River Yacht Club October Bowl on four consecutive Sundays – TBD.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you may have. We hope to continue to improve our racing as well as increase the number of boats participating.


Best of luck for everyone who ventures out to race and start recruiting your crew now. We generally have several members who are interested in just crewing and I am sure we usually have some skippers who could use crew from time to time, so let me know so we can get everyone on a boat and have a great time sailing in a FUN racing environment.


Fair Winds to all,

Steve Stallsmith and the

Tall Oaks Yacht Club Race Committee
