For the first time we were not only racing the Hobie Cat’s but also our new addition, the lasers! It was a great day with good wind and blue skies.

Friday, October 10, 2014 – After-Work Lime at Prickly Bay Marina’s Tiki Bar
Thanks to everyone who came out for our After Work Lime at Prickly Bay Marina on Friday, 10th October. The Tiki Bar is always a popular spot on a Friday night, especially with the yachting community. Not only do folks come for their very social happy hour, but they usually stay for the live musical entertainment which follows. You can dance the night away … and some of our PCYC gang did just that!

Congrats to winners: Ian Jarrold (1st), Pablo Mira (2nd), and Mike Bingley (3rd) – nice to see some newcomers on the podum!

March 8, 2014 – Rush 10 Match Races for “South Grenada Regatta”
It was an interesting day on the water to say the least…we were having a great time running the Rush 10 Match Races for SGR until one of the Rush 10 masts came down and races came to an immediate halt! Thankfully no one was hurt, and every team got to race at least once in the first heat before this happened, so all racers walked away happy, and we’re counting it as a successful day and more great exposure for the PCYC!
February 2, 2014 – Hobie Cat Races for “Grenada Sailing Week”
The PCYC had a great time running the Hobie Cat Match Races that Grenada Sailing Week organized for their racers on Lay Day Sunday at Le Phare Bleu Marina.

January 17, 2014 – After Work Lime
We brought Grenada’s two yacht clubs together for our After-Work Lime! We wanted to know each other better, plus together we may be able to do great things that can benefit the Grenada yachting community!
