More about our Fabulous Host

In fact, the LNYC offers several opportunities to LEARN TO SAIL!! If you are a beginner, they offer a 2 hour introduction to sailing or they have sessions called WOW (women on the water) or EOW (everyone on the water).  You have to check out their site for more information because once you see all of the beautiful boats and the location, you are going to want to SAIL!!

The TrueRiders

We are thrilled to have the TrueRiders as our featured band for post race fun.  Follow them on Facebook so you can see where they play locally!


The TrueRiders are a Lake Norman-based duo, featuring “Jukebox Johnny” Savage on vocals and guitar, and David Sanossian on guitar. With a repertoire of songs spanning back to the earliest days of Rock n’ Roll, they’re guaranteed to bring the goods!


We know that some of you would really like to be dropped off especially since many of you live in the neighborhood.  It is very important to keep traffic moving on Yacht Road on race morning so we have a plan that should help.  But, you have to do your part!! You have to get out of the car quickly so that traffic can not back up.  You can not park.  


Here is how we will all be successful:


Arrive at least 20 minutes before the start. (You don't want to be the reason everyone else has to wait to start.)


Your driver drives all the way to the end of Yacht Road.  


There is a cul de sac there.  They will follow it around and head back the way they came.  


At the main gate of LNYC, you can be dropped off.  If you want to be dropped off somewhere else on Yacht Road, please DO NOT USE PEOPLE'S DRIVEWAYS TO TURN AROUND. 


Your driver can not drive into the Yacht Club. You have to be dropped out on the road and walk into the club. 


Do not park in the grass alongside the club. Do not park in people's yards. 


For this to work, we have to all work together!


If you have any questions, please email




Back again to provide runners, spectators, and staff the best donuts and coffee around!  


They will be there serving from 7am until 10am.  They accept Cash and Cards. 


Look for them in the vendor village.
