The 2015 PRSA President’s Cup Regatta will be held September 19 & 20 at Washington Sailing Marina, continuing the long tradition of competitive one-design racing started by the President’s Cup in 1934. The regatta will be sailed on the Potomac River on two courses. One-person dinghies (Lasers, El Toros, Penguins) will race on Saturday in the cove near Washington Sailing Marina (WSM) or off of the power plant just south of WSM. Other classes (Albacores, Buccaneers, Catamarans, Flying Scots, Lightnings, I-20s, etc.) will race Saturday and Sunday on the north course between Hains Point and Gravelly Point (with the Capitol and national monuments as a backdrop). Register now for the 2015 President’s Cup and view the NOR and other race information. Registration fees increase after September 12, so make sure to register and pay online before September 12 to take advantage of the early registration discount!
We are also thrilled to announce that we will have a spectator boat — the schooner American Spirit — on Sunday thanks to the generosity of DC Sail and the National Maritime Heritage Foundation. Complete details are available on the regatta registration website.
Please note that the 2015 PRSA President’s Cup is being held on a weekend different than the annual LLS fundraiser. Read more about this scheduling decision in PRSA Commodore’s message to the association here.
