...until in 2016 when we were delighted to add another team to the mix and compete against the MYC for their own trophy!

It was a perfect BVI sailing day on Saturday 3 February as 13 BVI sailors from the Royal BVI Yacht Club and the West End Yacht Club joined the Manhattan Yacht Club teams to compete for the 2018 Manhattan Yacht Club Trophy

The RBVIYC and the WEYC would like to thank everyone who joined this year’s flotilla and all those who were involved in the Manhattan Yacht Club fundraising activities.  Commodore Fortenbaugh stunned the crowd at the prize giving when he announced the club had raised $15,000 for the BVI which has been divided across various projects on the islands, including BVI Youth Sailing and Virgin Islands Search and Rescue.
