2015 Tilghman Trifecta

September 9, 2015


Welcome to the 2015 Tilghman Trifecta. Yes, this is three regattas in three classes of RC yachts: The RC Laser Regatta, The EC12 Regatta and the STAR 45 National Championship Regatta all held at the Tilghman On Chesapeake YC and Marina in Tilghman, MD.

• The RC Laser Regatta is one day, Wednesday, September 9th.
• The EC12 Regatta is part of the Colonial Cup Series and will be Thursday and Friday, September 10th -11th.
• The STAR 45 NCR is Saturday and Sunday, September 12th and 13th.

Make your trip to one of the great locations on the Eastern Shore. Coastal Living refers to Talbot County as “the Hamptons of the Chesapeake Bay.” Come and sail all three regattas or come and take a break from one and serve on the RC. We could always use the help and I hope to sail all three myself so if you want to punch the countdown timer, call the line, write down finishers, keep the cooler full of iced drinks, step up and we’ll put you to work. I’ll buy you lunch.

Tilghman Island (www.TilghmanIsland.com) is located about 23 miles south west of Easton, MD and 15 minutes from St. Michaels, MD. Our community of Tilghman On Chesapeake has a comfortable yacht club and marina with male and female shower facilities, a pool and plenty of parking. Bring the family! You can view the venue in the picture below. We have 270 degrees of available racing waters with a large floating dock for launching. Our community web site is www.tochesapeake.com.
