TYC has an active adult racing program for cruising class yachts.  TYC races with the Spar Island Racing Association, which enables larger fleets, more varied competition and more fun all around. 

During the summer, Wednesday evening races start at 6:30.  Participation is encouraged at all skill levels.  Boats ranging from 23 feet to over 40 feet compete.  These are handicap races using the Performance Handicap Rating System.  A current PHRF certificate is required.  Boats are divided into three classes depending upon PHRF rating. Racers in any class may chose to race on any given day with or without spinnaker and the appropriate rating will be applied.  This is a superb rule which encourages people of all skill levels to get out and race and progress.

The club also participates in several other events around the bay: 

  • the MOHOSA race/regatta
  • the 20 Hundred Club races
  • SIRA Wednesday Night Racing
  • Every Wednesday night, the club participates in the Spar Island Racing Association (SIRA) race series.   
  • Charlie LaRoue Memorial Race 
  • Around the Island Race
