What is 'Rum Racing' ??

The primary goal of 'Rum Racing' is to get more boats out sailing...(and NOT
just the pure-bred racers).

The MYC Rum Races are run with no Race Committee. All boats start themselves,
on the honor system, in a reverse handicap format. Reverse Handicap means that
the start is staggered, with the slowest boat starting first, and the fastest boat
starting last. Each boat's start time is dependent upon its handicap. MYC maintains
a list with start times based on handicap.

Check this website , the radio-synchronized
clock in the MYC bar (or your GPS) for an accurate start time.  Or call

With the staggered start, the winner is determined by the first boat over 'the line'.
The finish line is on the opposite side of Mark 'S' from where you started,
perpendicular to the direct course from the last mark to Mark S, within 2 boat
lengths of the marker (see course chart  course waypoints).

Rum Races are run every other Sunday afternoon, at 2pm, during non-Daylight
Savings Time, and every other Friday evening at 6pm, while DST is in effect.
