Home Community Calendar DUKE'S TROPHY RACE SETS SAIL



The St. John Yacht Club will hold its annual Duke's Trophy Race on Dec. 8. The monohull with the fastest elapsed time gets the honor of claiming the perpetual Duke's Race trophy.
The skippers meeting and pre-race party begins at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 7 at Rumbalya Restaurant, located on the beach at Wharfside Village.
The race begins at 10 a.m. Dec. 8 at Two Brothers, located in Pillsbury Sound. The race takes place around the Pillsbury Sound Cays and finishes at Two Brothers.
A post-race party will follow at Rumbalya. The yacht club will provide launch service from boats to Cruz Bay beach.
Lee Morris, who serves as the yacht club's rear commodore, said that if anyone wants to participate but doesn't have a boat or a crew spot, they should attend the skippers meeting. Captains will be on hand to look for crews. "Just ask around," she said.
The entry fee is $30. If you, or your yacht club, are a member of a national yacht racing organization, the fee is $25.
For race instructions, entry forms and other information, call Morris at 776-6666.
