Challenge Cup

Spring, Summer, Fall & Holiday Regattas

The Santa Barbara Yacht Club Challenge Cup
The Challenge Cup Series is comprised of four events - the Spring, Summer, Fall, and Holiday Regattas.  Each of these events are run with top level, on the water race committee, and exciting buoy racing for one design and PHRF fleets.  Each individual event is open to members of other clubs in addition to SBYC members, but the Challenge Cup Trophy is reserved for SBYC member boats only.
