Centennial Commemorative Book

As part of the GYA and Lipton Regatta 100th Anniversaries in 2020, the GYA is putting together a 9×12”, 128-page, hard cover with dust jacket commemorative coffee table book. The GYA, its clubs and the Sir Thomas Lipton Regatta are rich with history and this commemorative book will combine that history into one source.

The commemorative books will be available for pick-up at the GYA Opening Regatta at St. Andrews Bay and at the anniversary celebration and Lipton Regatta at Southern YC Labor Day Weekend, 2020.
