LYRA 2020 Regional Events

LYRA 2020


Aug 13, 2020

The plans for LYRA 2020 originally included the traditional events and LYRA Week in Sodus Bay. COVID made this impossible.  For American boats, racing was possible and there were several separate events along the South Shore in Youngstown Rochester etc. For Canadian boats, racing was not possible so in its place so the LYRA Fun Race with no entry fee and independent participation took place on August 1.

The beautiful LYRA perpetual trophies are tentatively planned to be awarded during the Annual General Meeting on November 14, 2020 at the Youngstown Yacht Club. The trophies will be awarded to fleet overall corrected time first place finishers for FS, NFS, and One Design fleets. Currently many of the trophies are in Canada and cannot be collected. Our hope is that by November the situation will have changed. LYRA flags are to be awarded to first, second and third place finishers in each division where a race is going to occur. Flags will be mailed to the recipients post race. For the GTA Fun Sail all boats will receive a participation LYRA flag.
