Classic Yachts Challenge Series 2023

The organizing authority (OA) for the Classic Yachts Challenge Series (CYCS) is the Classic Yacht Owners Association (CYOA) in cooperation with the Organizing Authorities of the participating Series Events.

The Series takes place across three Racing Districts: “Maine”, ”Massachusetts”, and ”RI, CT, NY”. To qualify for a Series award a boat must be scored in a minimum of 5 races and 1 of these races must be scored outside the vessel’s declared Racing District. Note that some Series Events have more than 1 race; it is races scored that count.

What is new for 2023?

  • There have been some new clarity in divisions and a few reassignments of boats to new divisions. Please review the Appendix in the Notice of Series or our Divisions page
  • To allow for more balance in a qualified boat’s series scores, for those regattas that complete 4 or more individual races, only the top 3 races will be factored into overall season score.
  • We have already decided to return to The Sailing Museum for awards on Friday, November 10th at 6pm so mark your calendar!
