Mercury Series


The Mercury Series started in 2010 with the intention of opening the use of our boats and the harbor to more people. Last summer this was a very popular series, with most weeks bringing all six boats on the starting line. This is a great way to get out on the water with other boats, build community, and have some fun in our harbor.

The series is open to CYC members and also families of those who have sailors in the CAYSP program. The 2017 series is scheduled to be held on seven Thursday evenings, June 29 through August 10. The briefing will be at 5:00 with racing typically starting around 5:30 and going until 6:30 wind permitting. There are usually two or three races per evening with the support of a race committee.

Thursday evenings have been designated as “Family Nights” at CYC and the grill will be open to members and guests and CAYSP families so bring your favorite BBQ meats, salads, and and cold drinks to enjoy in company after the racing!

Sign up on the bulletin board at the club or contact co-directors Aaron Henderson at or at 207-522-5252, or Peter Conover at or see the CAYSP Program Director Sue Conover.
