Don’t end up on the Dark Side of the Duck! The Duck Island race is HHYC’s long distance race. There were many years when the best sailors amongst us have been stuck on the Dark Side of the Duck. Keeping this in mind, HHYC has tried to make the Duck more civilized. We have developed Plans B, C, and D just in case the wind is blowing the Duck off the pond, or well you know…the dark side thing again. We will follow up our race with a Cook Your Own Steak or Chicken Dinner followed by awards.

    Duck Island White Sails

    In 2007 Marshall Reutlinger established a new trophy for the White Sails division in the Duck Island Race. As the popularity of white sails racing grows, HHYC recognized the need to score and reward this growing fleet separately.
