The Cidertini Challenge is not to be missed. It’s DIYC’s last race of the season and features a classic start and finish (committee boat, horns, and flags) and classes for both Jib & Main and Spinnaker racing.
Starting sequence begins at 11 a.m. Monitor VHF Channel 8 on the water for up-to-date race information.
The Cidertini Party will follow at the DIYC tent, beginning at 4:30 p.m. You don’t have to race to attend: All club members are welcome. Enjoy hot mulled cider, plain or spiked with your choice of spirits. We’ll also have cold cider the purists, cider donuts, Vermont cheese and apples straight from the orchard.
Wear a costume if the spirit moves you; we’ll have prizes for the ones we like best.
And a teaser: Check out the back of this year’s Diamond Island Regatta T-shirt to find information that will come in handy to secure another prize.
Most important, show up! Hang out with friends, old and new, as we toast our summer together and the arrival of the autumnal equinox!
