Tall Oaks Yacht Club Racing 2019

Message from the Race Committee Chairman

Greetings and I hope that everyone is starting to think about 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” and this year we are planning a Ladies Helm Race.  The Challenge Cup Race will be run by the TOYC this year with Windjammers hosting the post-race party on Sept. 28nd. 


The cost of racing will still be $20 for the race season or $5 per race for TOYC Members. For non-members it will cost $40 for the race season or $10 per race.  We are planning a practice or Shake-Down race on June 8th.  

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 and the Leukemia Cup Regatta at Atlantic City Race Week (end) in July; Sail Fest on Toms River in September and Toms River Yacht Club October Bowl on four consecutive Sundays in September and October.


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 have several members who are interested in just crewing and I am sure we have some skippers who could use crew from time to time, so let me know so we can get everyone in a boat and having a great time sailing in a FUN racing environment. 


Fair Winds to all,


Dennis Smith
