The Vickie Cup is CLSA’s end-of-year championship, and this year we will have buoy races on Saturday and a distance race on Sunday. The CLSA calendar has been updated with this information.   

Oct. 16: CLSA Vickie Cup Buoy Race

-       All boat types welcome

-       Noon competitors’ meeting

-       1 p.m. first race start sequence

-       3:30 p.m. last race

-       Different boat classes will compete against each other using the Portsmouth rating system, which provides a handicap factor for each boat type depending on its typical speed under the conditions of the race.  

-       We will aim for two or three consecutive 50-minute races on a windward-leeward course.

Boats will be divided into two starting groups:

1) Flying Scots and other boats with a Portsmouth rating greater than or equal to that of the Flying Scot

2) 5 minutes after the first start, Thistles and other boats with a Portsmouth rating less than that of the Flying Scot

Oct. 17: CLSA Vickie Cup Distance Race

-       All boat types welcome

-       One race on a long course around Clinton Lake

-       5.5- or 11-mile course, depending on wind speed and conditions

-       Noon competitors’ meeting

-       1 p.m. (approximate) race start in the small basin just west of CLSA
