Poquoson Challenge & Crab Kill July 18

The Poquoson Challenge is a one-day event sponsored by Fleet 518 and Yeungling and will be held on the beautiful Poquoson River just south of the York River on Saturday, July 18th. The Entrance fee is $10.00 and dinner is $5.00 / person.

This is an informal fun regatta that allows you to sail w/ one or as many as your boat will take. The first race is scheduled to start at one PM on Saturday afternoon with four or five short windward/ leeward races planned. Races will be governed by the the “Racing Rules of Sailing.” No protests, please (this is supposed to be fun). Public launching is available on the Poquoson with a tow available if needed.

Racing will be followed by a crab and beer feast. Hamburgers/hotdogs will be available. Yeungling will be the beer! The party will be held at 238 King’s Grant Dr. Yorktown, VA.

Sunday offers a wonderful opportunity to day sail to the Bay or visit historic Yorktown or the world class Mariner’s. Everyone that has attended has had a great time.
