20-Mile Race

THE 20-MILE TIMED RACE

As a challenge to cruising boats, John McConnico originated the 20-Mile Timed Race in 1979 and donated the etched acrylic and wood trophy which remains in the clubhouse. The race, which can be run on any day of the skipper’s choosing, starts and ends at the “Ross Bryan Dock” and includes two turning marks; one being the large green cell at Old Hickory Dam and the other, the first green can upstream of Lindsley Light. The skipper is on his honor to keep his own time. Each year, the winners name and time is placed on the trophy and then the trophy is up for grabs the following year.
