Sag Harbor Yacht Club’s annual regatta, the Maycroft Cup was raced this past Saturday, September 25th, in and around Shelter Island Sound and Gardiners Bay. Twenty-three sailboats competing in six divisions came to the starting line in the yacht club’s 14th annual regatta.

Starting against the Shelter Island shore with winds blowing 8 to 15 knots from the Southwest, all classes sailed around marks set in Shelter Island Sound, then raced past Cedar Point into Gardiner’s Bay.  Divisions 1, 2, 5 & 6 sailed to Crow Shoals while Divisions 3 & 4 headed to Three Mile Harbor.  Against an ebbing tide, all divisions then returned past Cedar Point Light back into Shelter Island Sound through the South channel, finishing at the Sag Harbor Breakwater.
