Green Cup Sailboat Race

The Green Cup is a coveted trophy race and all sailors should sign up! This annual event has been a club tradition for many years and usually brings out great competition!

If anyone is interested in racing for the Green Cup, please email Don Guthrie ASAP at dguthrieca@aol.com.  If you need crew, HYC has a few members interested in helping you out.

Here's a little background of the man for whom the trophy bears his name:

Mr. John Green, a past HYC member, has just recently passed away (within the last couple weeks) and this race may be somewhat symbolic and a tribute to him.

John Green claims to have built and sailed the first ever sailboat on Harrison Lake which, until very recently, was moored  at our club for years. As well as a provincial and local politician, he owned our local newspaper for decades.
