To: GYA Board of Directors
The Executive Committee of the Gulf Yachting Association, along with the GYA Centennial Sir Thomas Lipton Challenge Committee and Commodore of Southern Yacht Club, in response to the devastation from Hurricane Ida, announces that the 2021 Board of Directors Semi-Annual Meeting and Centennial Sir Thomas Lipton Challenge will be postponed until October 29-31, 2021. The Executive Committee would like to request each club GYA Coordinator relay this announcement to their club’s Capdevielle sailing teams.
It is currently unsafe to travel to the city of New Orleans due to hurricane damage. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience during this difficult time. The Executive Committee will make additional announcements when available.
