1974: Year round one design racing was in vogue
with the arrival of single handed Force 5s, Lasers, and El Toros,
to join the ever popular Sunfish. Winter attire for the well dressed
skipper was a wet or dry suit. The first of what were to be twelve
annual Trash Bowl Regattas was held on Lake Trashmore on New Years
The Cape Henry Cup Race for Cruising and MORC boats (now PHRF)
was established. This is one of the more popular races on the southern
Chesapeake, with the course passing out through the Maryland Channel
opening of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel and returning through
the Thimble Shoal Channel opening.
BBSA received the CBYRA One-Design Race Committee of the Year Award,
and again in 1980.
