CRYC Annual Regatta


CRYC established 1937

Typical one design fleets: Penguins, Lasers, Optis, Sunfish, Catboats, 420's, Comets, and Beach Cats.  In addition, the Magothy River Sailing Association and CRYC collaborate on a race to and from Conquest with Tritons, Cals, and the PHRF A,B. C/D and N fleets called the Corsica River Race Back. 


Boats are launched from the beach.  There is no lift, but we have been putting Comets in the water with no difficulty.

In an effort to minimize confusion, Pre-paid discounts are available for Members and Participants.  To qualify for the pre-paid discount dinners must be paid in advance ($15 adult/$7.50 kid's meal) and payment received 7 days prior to the regatta.  Mail the check to CRYC, P.O. Box 24, Centreville, MD 21617.  All other dinners will be charged at the rate of $18 adult/$9.00 kid's meal, no exceptions.  Dinners that are not prepaid can be reserved through Luke Phipps at the $18.00 adult/$9.00 kid's meal prices.  Please be mindful that without a reservation, we cannot guarantee that you will be fed.  Extra dinners may be available at the door on a first come first serve basis. 


Camping and Dogs

Conquest is a pristine and open area on the Chester River with very little boat traffic.  The facility also has campgrounds, bathrooms, a cold water shower, a covered cabana, volley ball net, baseball diamond and a very nice beach.  Bring your kayaks!  It's a great way to watch the races.  There is no camping fee.  All minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult.


Participants who wish to camp Friday night should arrive between 9:30 AM and 9:30 PM.  After 9:30 the gates are closed for the night.  If you can't make it by then, contact us and we will try to make arrangements.  Camping is free.


Regarding the issue of dogs, we have struggled with this issue for years.  Although we want to be good hosts and welcoming to our guests, we must insist that a no dog policy be in place.  It is a matter of cleanliness and (more importantly) a safety issue.  There will be no exceptions to this rule.
