Hobie Cats Race in Grenada at the Mott Memorial

Another great day of racing took place in Grenada on July 14 when the Petite Calivigny Yacht Club (PCYC) hosted their Mott Memorial Hobie Cat Challenge.

Now the proud owners of the Hobie Cat previously owned by Mott Green (one of the original founders of the Grenada Chocolate Company who sadly passed away in June), the PCYC dedicated this race to Mott to both honor his memory and to mark the debut of using this  Hobie Cat in their match racing series.

The weather was superb for racing, and the PCYC welcomed a record 22 entrants and a plethora of spectators.  Racers were a mix of solos and doubles, youths and adults, locals and visitors, and, for the first time in the PCYC’s match racing history, some female competitors were also out on the race course strutting their stuff!

The PCYC would like to congratulate race winners Mike Bingley (1st), Dave Royce (2nd), and Richard Szyjan (3rd).  Winners’ prizes, appropriately, were bars of Grenada Chocolate Company’s organic dark chocolate. Thanks are extended to Le Phare Bleu Marina for providing the venue.
