The Ron Reid Memorial Race honours Ron Reid, who was a long time member of HYC. Ron passed away suddenly on July 15th, 2014. To honour his legacy and his love of sailing and racing, this race was created to remember him each year.
This is a long distance race designed to get members out on their boats to maximize their enjoyment of sailing, just as Ron demonstrated to all of us. Regardless of the winds, the race will pass HYC Mark B where Ron’s ashes were buried at sea nearby.
