Keelboat Regattas

Registration

Notice of Race

Sailing Instructions


The Bill Cheek Memorial Turkey Regatta is a Pursuit Race. In this format, boats receive staggered start times based on their PHRF ratings, i.e. the slower boats start first, followed by faster and faster boats, with the scratch boat starting last. This eliminates all those crowds at the start. It also makes crystal clear how you’re doing against the competition: the first boat to the finish wins, simple as that.

Those who day pursuit racing is uncompetitive have probably not tried it..There’s nothing like watching some guy with 10 feet more LOA walking up on you from astern to get you tweaking those control lines. And if you’re the one with the extra LOA, it's hard to keep a straight face as you roll past those little guys on your way to the finish.

Saturday October 8th, 2022

  • Skippers Meeting at 1215hrs

  • First Gun at 1325hrs

  • $25 Registration Fee (until midnight Thursday October 6)

  • $30 on Friday & Saturday Oct 7-8

 

Prizes

Turkeys will be awarded to the first 3 boats in each fleet to sail the course and finish.  Chickens will be awarded to all other boats sailing the course and finishing.

Tribute to Bill Cheek

As the Turkey Regatta draws near, we remember with fondness Bill Cheek, for whom the regatta is now named. Bill, a club member for more than 55 years until his death in 2012, was involved in race management at the Montreal, Seoul, and Atlanta Olympic Games. He was an international race officer and judge, president of both Ontario Sailing and Sail Canada, and served as RHYC commodore in 1981. Of his many experiences in mentoring and training locally, nationally and internationally, it was the camaraderie of RHYC race nights, regattas, and in particular the Turkey Regatta, that he enjoyed and treasured most. This year's event is set for Saturday, October 8.
