Race Is Open For Business!
The AHYC Race Committee is proud to announce that the 2013 Race Season is Open for Business! We may be starting slowly, but we are one of the few Clubs in the area that is lucky enough to start their season. If you have been thinking of racing, but are a little intimidated by the start, this is a very good time to get your feet wet (as it were).
The Spring Series is now the Spring Tune-up Series and is FREE! That's right. Four Wednesday Night Races for Free – not for $55.00, but FREE! The first race of this series starts Wednesday, May 29th, with the first (and possibly only) gun at 6:30. Please leave plenty of time to get your crew from the floating Temporary Club Dock on the Bulkhead near Pier 3. Register at Regattatech: http://www.regattatech.com/events/AHYC/Spring13 for FREE!
Our first distance race this season is the AHYC Ambrose Tower Race which can be registered for at: https://www.regattatech.com/clubs/AHYC/Ambrose13/registration/showEntryForm
Don’t forget the Skippers Meeting at 8:00 PM on Friday May 24th to pick up your Race Books and to trash talk your competition. If you are crew looking for a berth, show up and strut your stuff.
Our Mottos this year?
Open for Business
We Are a Work in Progress
Patience is a Virtue
We Will Make It Work

Great Success For Yard Sale Benefitting 180
The AHYC Ms. Race Committee was in full force on Saturday at the Atlantic Highlands Town-Wide Yard Sale. Under cloudy skies with some intermittent drizzle, the enthusiastic team hosted the annual yard sale benefitting 180 Turning Lives Around at the lovely home of Emily and Jeff Smith on 6th Avenue. We'd like to thank club members for their generous donations of nautical items, boat equipment, water sports gear and household goods. These bountiful gifts along with enthusiastic buyers enabled us to earn $700 for 180. Thank you to all who helped with this superb achievement!
Remember Wednesday night racing starts on May 29th, and that this year’s Ms Race is August 17, so get your crew and boats ready for the Ms Race weekend.
