The Vernon Yacht Club is pleased to announce, that after a 2 year hiatus, the annual VYC regatta is set to return for 2022. The VYC Regatta Committee welcomes and thanks our 2022 Event sponsor, Burton Marine Pile Driving Inc!!!  Thank you to Mike Doiron – Residential Dock Sales. Activities will start Friday afternoon (June 3rd, 2022) with the traditional fun “Whiskey Island Race” from Whiskey Island (aka Grant Island) to the Vernon Yacht Club. VYC’s famous Steak/Salmon Friday night dinner will be available for purchase Friday evening.  Actual regatta racing starts Saturday morning and continues on Sunday.  Regatta activities include a Saturday evening dinner and dance with live music, a continental breakfast Saturday and Sunday mornings, and an awards lunch Sunday afternoon. All attempts are being made to return the regatta format to a PRE Covid schedule, however, there may be some lingering Covid protocols still in effect that may force us to change the schedule of event at the last minute. The Regatta Committee invites all skippers, and sailing crews to come enjoy the regatta festivities. We are looking forward to welcoming all sailors back to this long-running event.
