    Good Afternoon Vanderbilt Cup Competitors, While the last few days have felt eerily similar to last year about this time, and we continue under a Gale Warning until 2000 hrs. this evening (09/30/16), the winds are predicted to diminish overnight to 15-20 kts. by morning before diminishing further to 10-15 kts. tomorrow afternoon, according to the latest National Weather Service Marine Forecast for our area. So, we’re on for tomorrow’s race and looking forward to seeing all of you on the starting line! We're also all set for the Regatta Party, which will be held in the huge tent on the Vanderbilt Museum lawn this year due to weather forecasts. Your Regatta Party fee includes live music by the Just Cause band, dinner and AriZona® beverages, plus two drink tickets per person redeemable for beer or wine. (Additional drink tickets will also be available for purchase at the event.) As always, the Regatta Party will also include raffles with all proceeds to benefit the Vanderbilt Museum, featuring great prizes donated by many area businesses. We encourage you to bring cash and participate generously to keep this beautiful venue open for many more years to come!" Lastly, just as a reminder, boats who have requested moorings at CYC should check in with our dockmaster on VHF Channel 68 for your mooring assignment. See you on the water. Erik H.
