Two white sailboats near a turning mark during the Lanier Cup race.

Impetuous, a Pearson 31, skippered by Greg Cash of LLSC, gets overlapped with Daedalus, a Beneteau 235, skippered by Ryan Jones of BFSC, as the two boats approach a turning mark on the racecourse.

Lake Lanier Sailing Club took home bragging rights at this year’s Lanier Cup. The lakewide sailing regatta is hosted annually by UYC Maritime Foundation.

Eleven boats participated in the competition held in early November. Each of the lake’s sailing clubs send up to four of their best skippers and boats to compete in a one-day series of races to determine Lake Lanier’s best club.

The event, begun in 1997, has been hosted by University Yacht Club and the UYC Maritime Foundation for more than a quarter of a century.

Lake Lanier Sailing Club placed first. Barefoot Sailing Club was awarded second place. University Yacht Club won third place.

After the competition, UYC catered the awards ceremony.
