Codger Cup

The Codger Cup was started in 1995 by Ann Sziklas. This race was originally created for older members of CYC as an informal one-design race using the Turnabouts, and racing only when the weather was fair.

In some years, a series of races were held; other years hosted one or two races throughout the whole season. The racer with the most accumulated points won the cup, and just by showing up one would receive the benefit of gaining a few extra points.

The Codger Cup is now sailed in the Mercurys and the ages of participants range from the old Codgers to families with young children.

This year’s Codger Cup race will be held in August. The course will be set by a race committee and, if the wind dies or changes direction, the course may be changed mid-race. If you are interested, please watch for more information on the CYC bulletin board, or contact CYC Fleet Captain Arthur Adelberg at or 202-380-6514.
