The 2021 South Shore Yacht Club Queen’s Cup® Race
will be held on June 25, 2021
and will finish in Muskegon (hosted by Muskegon YC).
Plan now to enter the 82nd challenge of one of the most storied yacht races on the Great Lakes. This year’s night race across Lake Michigan departs from Milwaukee, WI for Muskegon, MI on June 25, 2021.
Both Milwaukee’s South Shore Yacht Club and the Muskegon Yacht Club will provide an experience worthy of this 83rd Queen’s Cup Race.
The race is open to all boats with a valid 2021 Lake Michigan Performance Handicap Racing Fleet (LM-PHRF) rating certificate and Offshore Racing Rule (ORR) rating certificates. We will continue to have starts for the shorthanded fleet (with a limit of two crew per boat) and a cruising fleet for non-spinnaker monohulls.
We are looking forward to increasing the participation of one design boats such as the J/105, Beneteau 40.7, Beneteau 36.7, and Tartan 10s. The racing between these boats and other one design boats has been close in prior years.
The fee structure is based on boat length. This helps to make the fee schedule more affordable for smaller boats.
Registration will be open and the Queen’s Cup page on the SSYC website will be updated with the Notice of Race (NOR) and other documents by mid-February.
