The annual BYRA Invitational McDonald Cup will be held this weekend, April 27-28, at Smith Mountain Lake. This year, for the first time, the event will include a Fleet V for mono-hull centerboard boats under 20 feet in length. For spectators, all racing initiates on the Blackwater River arm of SML, just off Pelican Point Yacht Club in Union Hall. Depending on weather conditions, the starting line will sometimes be moved to the Bull Run area near Christmas Tree Island. Follow the Race Committee's pontoon boat to find the starts. Start time is usually around noon.
