Noroton Yacht Club will host the inaugural Susan Widmann Sinclair Women’s Championship, an umpired regatta that will include a dozen of the country’s top women sailors. The event will be sailed in the Noroton Yacht Club’s Sonar fleet.
The Sinclair Women’s Championship is an event our Club has wanted to do for a long time. With the increasing support of women’s regattas, both nationally and at Noroton, this is a great way for us to use our fleet of Sonars to increase opportunities for top women sailors. It also allows us to honor a woman who played an important role in our club's history and heritage. All of us at Noroton look forward to this Championship becoming a major part of the growing women’s championship circuit.
~ Noroton YC Commodore, Bobby Lawrence.
In addition to being awarded the new Susan Widmann Sinclair Women’s Championship trophy, the winning skipper will receive an invitation to the New York Yacht Club 2024 Women’s Championship in Newport, RI.
