AHMEN is an acronym for Alexandra Yacht Club, Harbour City Yacht Club, Mimico Cruising Club, Etobicoke Yacht Club and National Yacht Club. These clubs organize a series of 6 races in August and September. Each race has two white sail and two FS divisions. The races are held in Humber Bay and take between 2 and three hours to complete. There is only one race; the starting signal is at 11:30. Each division awards a flag for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. In addition the R boats are scored and awarded a trophy specific to their class. Two years ago, the Argosy, was incorporated into the NYC race. The Argosy Cup is awarded after the race at NYC. An Awards Dinner is held in early February.
There is no entry fee but competitors must register before the race. Eligible boats may register by completing an AHMEN Racing 2013 entry form, available from www.ahmen.ca and sending it to Etobicoke Yacht Club, Attn.: Paul Bryan [AHMEN], 300 Humber Bay Park Road West, Toronto, Ontario M8V 3X7, by fax to 416.259.9808 or as a scanned document to: email@example.com. Entries must be received by 5PM Thursday, prior to the first race in which you wish to compete.
Good luck to the all the competitors!
