Peter Loft Marathon
The Peter Loft Marathon is held annually to commemorate the untimely death of one of its most promising young sailors, Peter Loft, and to raise funds (via entry fees) for the Peter Loft Foundation which is established to assist junior members of BYRA to participate in National and International sailing events. The event consists of a race to Lion Island, around Lion Island and back to the clubhouse at BYRA. The start is “Le Mans style” with the participants running to their boats in the water and then sailing north. BYRA welcomes many visitor boats every year from humble single handers to powerful skiffs. Juniors have their own course which is completed by sailing around Scotland Island.
LION ISLAND RACE
Each November, on the anniversay of the founding of BYRA way back in 1949, BYRA holds a yacht race around Lion Island. Officially known as the Lion Island Challenge Cup, the event is open to all members and guests.

It’s a great day out and all members and their friends are welcome.
TUESDAY TWILIGHT SAILING
The Tuesday night Twilight races will be reintroduced this 2018-19 season after a two-year break. Whilst all sizes of keelboat are welcome we have found mostly ‘Classic’ craft and those that have seen a couple of decades or so under their hull are most popular. It is a handicap time start.
The start is at 6pm at Hall’s Wharf between the port mark and the RPA buoy.
