the ice cream cup

Every August, more than 100 Optimists take over the waters of Northport Bay for Centerport Yacht Club’s annual Junior Sailing regatta, The Ice Cream Cup.

Prizes are awarded to the top three finishers in the Red (ages 13, 14, 15), Blue (ages 11 and 12), White (ages 10 and under) and Green (first time racers) fleets and for the top finisher, but all sailors get to enjoy an ice cream party on the lawn at the end of a fun day of racing. CYC’s Ice Cream Cup is an Area A qualifying event for the Junior Sailing Association of Long Island Sound (JSALIS) Optimist Championship.


The 2017 Ice Cream Cup will take place at The WaterFront Center.
