GOVERNOR'S CUP WEEK CONCLUDES


What a great week, on and off the water, particularly with the world-class competition throughout this 48th edition of the Governor's Cup!   Congratutions to Sam Gilmour of Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club (Australia) for winning the Cup for the second time!   Second place goes to past champion Nevin Snow of San Diego Yacht Club, and special congratulations to our own BYC Team of Christophe Killian, Harrison Vandervort and Jack Martin for finishing 3rd Place!   Great job as well to BYC Team Ryan Davidson, Gregg Kent and Brandon Folkman, for their sixth place finish. Click on the Gov Cup link to the left, to access the Governor's Cup page.  

The America's Cup was also at BYC, escorted by Commodore Norbert Bajurin from the Golden Gate Yacht Club (and Honorary BYC Member).    In conjunction with the presentation of the "Auld Mug", our own Andy Rose (Governor's Cup AND America's Cup Alumnus) conducted a "press conference" type interview with the leading skippers going into the final day of the racing.  Andy was joined on the podium with Gary Jobson, America's Cup Hall of Fame member and ESPN Commentator.  It was truly a memorable evening.

PARKING GATE REMOTES AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE  -  $25 each


The club now has available "clickers", similar to garage door openers, to open the gates at both parking lots.  They can be used from a short distance from the gate, in lieu of swiping your card directly on the pad.   Due to limited inventory, remotes are limited to one for the primary member, and one for the secondary member (spouse/significant other).  Sorry, not available for dependants.   See Gracie at the Front Office, for purchase.
